  • IEEE-USA Government Fellowships

    Each year, IEEE-USA sponsors three qualified IEEE members to serve as government fellows: one Engineering & Diplomacy Fellow and two Congressional Fellows. The fellows spend a year in Washington, serving as advisors to the U.S. Congress or key U.S. Department of State decision-makers. IEEE-USA's Government Fellowships link engineers with government, providing a mechanism for IEEE-USA members to learn firsthand about the public policy process through personal involvement. The Congressional Fellowship consists of an appointment to the personal staff of a U.S. Senator or Congressman, or to the professional staff of a Congressional Committee. The Fellow along with the Congressional sponsor and IEEE-USA, negotiates a starting date, although IEEE-USA recommends that Fellowship terms run from January 1st to December 31st. The State Department Fellowship begins in January of each year and offers an opportunity for an engineer to provide technical expertise to the State Department and help raise awareness of the value of engineering input while learning about and contributing to the foreign policy process. Application Kits for the 2013 IEEE-USA Government Fellowships will be available on the IEEE-USA website by early Fall of 2011. The postmark application deadline for the 2013 Fellowships will be 16 March 2012. For additional information about the IEEE-USA Government Fellowships, visit the IEEE-USA website and see the link under public policy.
