2013-2014 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 from September to August each year serving as advisers 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.

For an application Kit for the 2013-2014 Congressional Fellowship Program, visit: http://ieeeusa.org/policy/govfel/congfel.asp

The State Department fellowship 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.

For an application Kit for the 2013-2014 Engineering & Diplomacy (State Department) Fellowship Program, visit: http://ieeeusa.org/policy/govfel/state.asp

The postmark application deadline for 2013-2014 Fellowships is 8 February 2013. For more information, visit: http://ieeeusa.org/policy/govfel/congfel.asp

 

Thought for the Day  
This summer was hot. Without electrical engineers, there would not have been air conditioners or the electricity to run them. Think about that when someone says, "So, what do you do for a living?"
