APAICS Fellows are placed across House and Senate offices, committees, and leadership offices. Fellows work on a variety of policy issues depending on their interest, expertise, and the placement office's needs. Issue area-specific tracks are designed for applicants with interest/experience in the policy area. Applicants for an issue-specific track will also be considered for any general congressional fellowship opening as well. Previous issue area-specific fellowship tracks include general legislative fellows, education fellows, STEM fellows, and financial services fellows.
The 2021-2022 issue area tracks currently include:
1) General Congressional Fellowship: For applicants wishing to gain work congressional work experience on a range of legislative issues. General congressional fellows work with their placement offices to establish a legislative issue portfolio responsive to the applicant's interest/experience and the office's needs.
2) Comcast Tech & Telecom Fellowship: For applicants with a specific interest in pursuing tech and telecom policy while in Congress and in their future pursuits. The Tech & Telecom Fellow's responsibilities may include other legislative issue areas and is not solely restricted to this issue-area track. We encourage any applicant with experience or an interest in increasing their experience in tech & telecom issues to apply for this track.
Please indicate your track preference in the application when prompted. Specific tracks beyond general congressional fellowship (i.e. Tech & Telecom Fellowship) will require an additional short essay response.
