APA Seeks Application for Fellowship Positions

11/18/2015-

by SIOP Administrative Office

The American Psychological Association (APA) is now seeking applications for its Congressional Fellowship and Executive Branch Science Fellowship programs. Applications must be complete by Jan. 8, 2016.

These opportunities allow a select number of psychologists to spend a year in Washington, DC, where they receive first-hand experience with federal policymaking and agency research and funding. 

Congressional Fellows work as special legislative aides in congressional member or committee offices and engage in a diverse range of policymaking activities on vital issues. There are special designations for midcareer/senior professionals and experts in health and behavior issues, and APF supports a specialized Congressional Fellowship for developmental and clinical psychologists with experience working with children.

Executive Branch Science Fellows work as a special assistant in a federal agency on topics ranging from science policy to research administration.  Past placements have included the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Justice, and U.S. Agency for International Development.

For more information on the Congressional Fellowship, contact Micah Haskell-Hoehl at mhaskell-hoehl@apa.org or 202-336-5935. For questions about the Executive Branch Science Fellowship, contact Heather Kelly at hkelly@apa.org or 202-336-5932.
