Fellowship Description:    

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) will sponsor a Congressional Fellow from September 2024 through August 2025. The Fellow will spend the year working on the staff of either a member of Congress or a congressional committee, working in legislative and policy areas requiring scientific and technical input.

The Fellow brings his/her/their technical background and external perspective to the decision-making process in Congress. Prospective Fellows must be cognizant of and demonstrate sensitivity toward political and social issues and have a strong interest in applying personal knowledge toward solutions to societal problems.

Now in its 19th year, the AMS Congressional Fellowship provides a unique public policy learning experience, and demonstrates the value of science-government interaction. The program includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations, and a year-long seminar series on issues involving science, technology, and public policy.

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, 2024). • Applicants must be U.S. citizens. • Federal employees are not eligible.

Stipend amount: The stipend for the fellowship period (September 1, 2024 – August 31, 2025) will be $100,479, with additional allowances for relocation and professional travel, as well as a contribution toward health insurance.

Applicants must submit a statement expressing interest and qualifications for the AMS Congressional Fellowship as well as a current curriculum vitae. Candidates must also have three letters of recommendation sent to the AMS by the February 1, 2024 deadline.
