Our goal is to find a handful of students— Master’s or PhD’s— that want to help us build this program in Congress. Just like our other fellows, we’ll place them on the Hill, in high-impact offices, working on issues ranging from investigating the security of our elections, to proposing standards for medical device safety, to opening government data. They'll serve in Congress for four to six months, starting this summer.
