AIP Congressional Fellowships Deadline

The deadline for applications for the AIP Congressional Fellowship Program is January 15, 2010. Congressional Fellowships are an opportunity for physicists who want to apply their knowledge and skills beyond the lab bench to the conduct of national policy. After a two-week orientation in Washington, Fellows work with congressional offices to select an assignment in the office of a Member of Congress or for a congressional committee. The fellowship term is for one year, usually running September through August. Benefits include a stipend of $65,000 per year, a relocation allowance, an allowance for in-service travel for professional development and reimbursement for health insurance up to a specified maximum.
