AGI William L. Fisher Congressional Fellowship

Educators are encouraged to consider applying for or passing this along to colleagues who you think may be interested in this unique opportunity.

The AGI Congressional Geoscience Fellowship represents a unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience with the legislative process on Capitol Hill. The successful candidate will spend 12 months (starting September 1, 2020) in Washington working as a staff member in the office of a member of Congress or a congressional committee. Fellows make practical contributions to the effective and timely use of geoscientific knowledge on issues relating to the environment, resources, natural hazards, and federal science policy.

Prospective applicants should have a broad geoscience background and excellent written and oral communication skills. Although prior experience in public policy is not necessary, a demonstrable interest in applying science to solving public problems is desirable. A Ph.D. at the time of appointment or a master’s degree in engineering plus three years of professional engineering experience is required. Applicants must be members of one of AGI’s member societies, a list of which is available on our website.
