Capitol Hill Insights: Voices from the Congressional Fellowship Program

The second virtual issue of PS: Political Science & Politics is now available online!

Entitled “Capitol Hill Insights,” the issue features articles written by alumni of APSA’s Congressional Fellowship Program and published in PS between 2010 and 2015. Each of the 24 articles pivots to a unique perspective of the fellowship experience, providing rich details and first-hand anecdotes that clarify and explain how Congress and government work.

Established in 1953, the Congressional Fellowship Program brings select scholars and professionals to Washington, DC, each year to serve fellowship placements in congressional and other offices. The articles gathered here—written by alumni who are political scientists, journalists, health policy specialists, and other domestic and international professionals—illustrate the unique first-hand insights into Congress and the legislative process provided by the fellowship experience.
