Congressional Fellow, Congressional Fellowships on Women in Public Policy
The fellowship program places current or recent graduate students in the Washington, D.C. offices of Members of Congress and congressional committees. Fellows work 40 hours per week from January through August as legislative aides on public policy issues. Following a mandatory two-week orientation to Capitol Hill in January, Fellows meet once a week at issue seminars with women's advocates, congressional staff, researchers, and lobbyists. The program is designed to develop a cadre of talented women experienced in public policymaking at the national level; encourage more effective participation by women in policy formation at all levels of government; examine how policies affect women and men differently and encourage the formulation of policy options that recognize the needs of all people; promote activities that encourage the translation of research into policy; raise awareness that domestic and international issues affecting women are interdependent; and increase understanding that those issues often defined as "women's issues" are, in fact, "human issues" of equal importance to men and women.
