The APAICS Congressional Fellowship is designed for young AAPI professionals looking to increase their experience in public policy and service. The full-time paid, 9-month program places fellows in congressional offices to gain policy experience as part of the legislative team. The program provides fellows with opportunities to build their leadership skills, encourages political engagement, and fosters interest in a public service career.
2022-2023 Fellowship Tracks
APAICS Fellows are placed across House and Senate offices, committees, and leadership offices. General Congressional 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.
1) General Congressional Fellowship: For applicants wishing to gain congressional work experience on a range of legislative issues.
