APA seeks applications for its Congressional Fellowship and Executive Branch Science Fellowship programs. These opportunities allow up to three psychologists to spend a year in Washington, D.C., where they receive firsthand experience with federal policymaking and agency research and funding.
Congressional fellows work as special legislative assistants in congressional member or committee offices and engage in a diverse range of policymaking activities. APA offers specialized congressional fellowships for midcareer professionals, experts in health and behavior issues, and developmental psychologists with experience working with children.
Executive branch science fellows gain crucial experience in science policy and research coordination and funding by working in a federal science agency.
Both programs offer a yearlong stipend and funds to support relocation, travel and the purchase of health insurance.
For more information, visit APA Fellows or call the Public Interest Government Relations Office at (202) 336-5935 or the Science Government Relations office at (202) 336-5932.
Applications must be postmarked by Jan. 6.
