Congressional Fellow Program Special Committee

What is the Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship?

This Fellowship provides a stipend for the successful candidate to work in a Congressional office (either House or Senate) for a year, providing advice on science and engineering matters to a member of Congress and his or her staff. The purpose of the Fellowship is to bring a reasoned and knowledgable view of nuclear matters to Congress, and to act as a science and engineering resource for Congress.

The Fellowship is planned as part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship Program. AAAS approval of ANS in their program is pending. These Fellowships have been awarded every year since 1970. About twenty-five national science and engineering societies offer Fellowships under the AAAS program. ANS will provide assistance with placement of the Fellow in Congressional office.
