Opening Soon: ASME's Federal Government Fellowships in Washington, DC!

If you or someone you know has an interest in government and policy and a desire to take your engineering expertise to a new level, consider applying for one of ASME’s Federal Government Fellowships!
Over the past 50 years, ASME has sponsored more than 119 Federal Fellows, representing some of the best and brightest engineers and academics, who have served in the Executive Office of the White House, U.S. Congress, or other federal agencies.

Applications open November 1!

L to R: ASME Fed. Fellow Craig Scott; Dr. Laurie Locascio, Director of NIST; ASME Fed. Fellow Julien Caubel; ASME Fed. Fellow Aditi Gupta; ASME Fed. Fellow Elisabeth Deeb; ASME Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile during the August 2022 Fellows Orientation.

Fellows bring their engineering experience to an immersive experience in the creation of public policies that advance engineering, science, and technology to help solve the nation’s—and the world’s—greatest challenges.
From helping draft legislation to responding to constituents to developing strategies and policies, these 12-month fellowships are a life-changing and leadership-developing experience. Fellows depart with new professional qualifications and the satisfaction of having served the public good at the highest levels.

“It’s an experience I highly recommend to other engineers wanting to learn about and ultimately shape policy at the highest levels. I’m very glad I did it,” says Jaclyn Brennan, Ph.D., who just completed her one-year fellowship. “Throughout my education, when I was working in the lab I knew I was developing new innovations that were making a difference to the world. But through this Federal Fellowship, I know I made a difference in people’s lives every day.”
Adds former fellow Michael Woodmansee, Ph.D., P.E., “I was excited to have this opportunity to become involved in an area that is completely different from the environment engineers normally work in—a whole different set of experiences that are unique to someone like me who comes from a more traditional engineering education and profession. … I was proud to have driven forward several bills where I personally played a role in identifying a problem and solving it. Although I plan to return to a career in the technical field, there is no question this experience will make me a better engineer.”
The fellowships are coordinated by ASME’s Government Relations personnel in Washington, D.C., and generously financially supported by the ASME Foundation. The 2023-2024 Fellowship term begins in October 2023 and extends through September 2024.
Applications open November 1, 2022 and close on January 31, 2023. To learn more about the ASME Federal Government Fellows program and apply, visit our Federal Fellows program page.
