Applications are now open for the Library of Congress Fellowship in Congressional Policymaking.
Negotiation is vital to public policymaking in the U.S. Congress. In fact, legislative productivity is dependent on effective legislative negotiations, given the complexities of our system of separated branches with a bicameral legislature.
In an effort to support scholarship in this area, the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship in the field of congressional policymaking, with a special focus on legislative negotiations.
Apply here. And check the fellowship requirements and eligibility information here.
The application deadline is currently set for June 15, but we will be revisiting this deadline as the COVID-19 situation develops. Please email [email protected] if you are currently applying or interested in applying for this fellowship and are having trouble meeting the deadline. Kluge staff will be in touch with you.
The fellowship program is made possible by generous support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
