APA Congressional Fellowship Program call for applications

APA seeks applications for its congressional fellowship program. These opportunities allow up to two psychologists to spend a year in Washington, D.C., where they receive first-hand experience with federal policymaking.

Congressional fellows work as special legislative assistants in congressional member or committee offices and engage in a diverse range of policymaking activities.

In addition to the general Fellowship, APA offers the: Catherine Acuff Congressional Fellowship for midcareer professionals; William A. Bailey Congressional Fellowship for experts in health and behavior issues; and American Psychological Foundation Jacquelin Goldman fellowship for psychologists with experience working with children. The program provides a year-long stipend and funds to support relocation, travel, and the purchase of health insurance.

For more information, visit www.apa.org/about/gr/fellows or call the Public Interest Government Relations Office at (202) 336-5935. Applications must be postmarked by Jan. 6, 2012.
