American Psychological Association (APA) Congressional Fellowship Program

The APA’s Congressional Fellowship Program aims to provide psychologists with an invaluable public policy learning experience, to contribute to the more effective use of psychological knowledge in government and to broaden awareness about the value of psychology-government interaction among psychologists and within the federal government. Fellows spend one year working on the staff of a member of Congress or congressional committee. Activities may involve drafting legislation, conducting oversight work, assisting with congressional hearings and events, and preparing briefs and speeches. The stipend ranges from $75,000 to $90,000, depending upon years of postdoctoral experience. Applications are due January 11, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
