Apply for a 2017-2018 ASME Congressional Fellowship

Sep 22, 2016

Sept. 23, 2016

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 ASME Congressional Fellowship through the ASME Federal Government Fellowship Program.

Since 1973, ASME has sponsored more than 100 Federal Fellows, providing them with an opportunity to serve a one-year term in the administration or U.S. Congress. Fellows serve as independent, non-biased advisors in engineering, science and technology, bringing a nonpartisan, pragmatic approach to analysis and input which has a profound impact on the decision-making process. The result is effective and technologically appropriate public policy based on sound engineering principles.

Applicants for the Fellowship must have a strong energy background. ASME has long supported a balanced portfolio of energy supplies to meet the nation's energy needs, including advanced clean coal, petroleum, nuclear, natural gas, waste-to-energy, biomass, solar, wind and hydroelectric power. ASME also supports energy efficient building and transportation technologies, as well as transmission and distribution infrastructure sufficient to satisfy demand under reasonably foreseeable contingencies.

ASME will be accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Congressional Fellowship until Jan. 31, 2017. This ASME Congressional Fellowship is sponsored by ASME Government Relations, the ASME Foundation and the ASME Petroleum Division.
