ASME Announces New Federal Fellowship Opportunity with the Department of State
ASME is pleased to announce a new Federal Fellowship opportunity with the U.S. State Department of State. Candidates interested in spending a year in Washington, D.C. supporting the agency on issues at the intersection of engineering and diplomacy are encouraged to apply.
ASME was one of the first scientific societies to place fellows in the federal government as technical advisors, and as we celebrate 50 years of our Federal Fellows Program, we are proud to welcome the Department of State into the ASME Federal Fellows network.
Fellowships start in September and run through the following August each year. Eligible applicants for this fellowship must have a graduate degree in a STEM discipline at the time of starting their fellowship, and be willing to relocate to the Washington D.C. metro area for the duration of the program. Applicants interested in the ASME-Department of State Federal Fellowship will also be required to obtain a Security Clearance prior to starting. If you have any questions about your ability to obtain a security clearance, please visit the Department of State’s website.
ASME Federal Fellowships are coordinated by ASME’s Government Relations personnel in Washington, D.C., and generously financially supported by the ASME Foundation. Applications close on January 31, 2023. To learn more about the ASME Federal Government Fellows program and apply, visit our Federal Fellows page.
