AMS Congressional Fellowship

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) will sponsor a Congressional Fellow from September 2021 through August 2022. The fellowship includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations, and a year-long seminar series involving science, technology and public policy. The AMS congressional fellow will spend the year working on the staff of a Member of Congress or a congressional committee, as a legislative assistant in legislative and policy areas requiring scientific and technical input. 

The AMS Congressional Fellowship is part of the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowship (STPF) program. It is designed to provide a unique public policy learning experience, to demonstrate the value of science-government interaction, and to bring a technical background and external perspective to the decision-making process in the Congress. 

Prospective Fellows must demonstrate expertise in an area of mathematical sciences; possess a good scientific and technical background; understand and demonstrate sensitivity toward political and social issues; and, most importantly, display a strong interest and some experience in applying personal knowledge toward solving societal problems.

Eligibility: The eligibility rules are as follows:

  • Applications are invited from individuals in the mathematical sciences.
  • Applicants must have a PhD or an equivalent doctoral-level degree by the application deadline (February 1, 2021).
  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Federal employees are not eligible.

Stipend amount: The stipend for the fellowship period (September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022) will be $86,335, with allowances for relocation and professional travel and a contribution towards health insurance.

An AMS Fellowship Committee will select the AMS Congressional Fellow.
