A little more info on the program…

Since our founding in 2015, we’ve sent 54 technologists to Congress, who’ve served with the most influential members of government, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-SD), the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and the Senate Commerce Committee. Our fellows have done groundbreaking work on issues such as data privacy, deepfake detection, voting machine security, the intersection of tech and disability rights, drone standards, defense technology innovation, operations modernization, and antitrust. As an organization, we’ve grown strategically and incrementally, iterating and improving at each step.

And today, TechCongress is thrilled to be growing again, and recruiting for our fifth class of Congressional Innovation Scholars!

Between now and January 20, we’re looking for top engineers, computer scientists, and other technologists who want to apply their skills in our nation’s capital, facing some of the greatest challenges facing our country and serving a purpose greater than any other. Even if you’ve never thought about working in government, you should give the Congressional Innovation Scholars Program a second look.
