ASA Congressional Fellowship: The Sydney S. Spivack Program in Applied Social Research and Social Policy
The ASA encourages applications for the Congressional Fellowship. The Fellowship brings a PhD-level sociologist to Washington, DC, to work as a staff member on a congressional committee or in a congressional office. This intensive twelve month (September to September) experience reveals the intricacies of the policy making process to the sociological fellow, and shows the usefulness of sociological data and concepts to policy issues.
Deadline: Feb. 15, 2017
The stipend for the Fellowship is $70,000 for 12 months. (The Fellow is not an ASA employee and thus there are no additional benefits, including health insurance.) The Fellowship is funded by the American Sociological Foundation and is part of the Spivack Program in Applied Social Research and Social Policy.
