ADVANCE YOUR CAREER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE: APPLY FOR AN ASME FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FELLOWSHIP ASME is currently accepting applications for participation in its 2013-2014 Federal Government Fellowship Program through which ASME members provide engineering and technical expertise to policy-makers in Congress. Federal Fellows provide a valuable public service to the nation, while at the same time providing engineers with a unique opportunity to participate directly in the public policy making process. ASME Congressional Fellowships ASME Congressional Fellows spend one year in Washington, D.C. working with the staff of a congressional committee, U.S. Senator or U.S. Representative. Congressional Fellowships are designed to demonstrate the value of engineering-government interaction, bring technical backgrounds and external perspectives to the decision making process in Congress and provide a unique public policy learning experience to the Fellow. Because of the limited number of Congressional Fellowships available, the process is very competitive. The following credentials are encouraged: at least five years of professional experience; an advanced engineering degree; professional engineer registration; and, some public policy experience. All ASME Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $75,000 for the one year Fellowship. ASME Federal Fellows typically serve from September through August, but a January through December term is sometimes an option. Applications are currently being accepted through January 31, 2013. All Fellows must be U.S. citizens and ASME members at the time of application.
