OPPORTUNITY: Applications for 2023 TechCongress Fellowships are open

From the TechCongress

Applications for our June 2023 Congressional Innovation (early-career) Fellowship are now open and will close on Thursday, February 2nd at 11:59pm ET!

We are recruiting for up to twelve early-career fellows — 5-7 to serve in Democratic offices and 5-7 to serve in Republican offices. Fellows will serve from mid-June 2023 – April 2024 and receive an annual-equivalent stipend of $64,505 ($5,375 / mo.) with up to $9,000 in benefits.

Since 2016, we’ve sent over 75 technologists to Congress. Fellows have made an incredible impact on both the institution and tech policy, including: helping draft the House Judiciary Committee’s Antitrust Subcommittee report on tech monopolies; issuing House Modernization Committee’s recommendations to make Congress more effective, efficient and transparent; managing the investigation into the allegations made by Facebook whistleblower Francis Haugen; and working on the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act to ban imports from Xinjiang on the grounds of genocide and human rights abuses.

Congress needs people like you. Apply now.
