TechCongress 2020 Congressional Innovation Fellowship

TechCongress places computer scientists, engineers, and other technologists to serve as technology policy advisors to to Members of Congress through a one-year Congressional Innovation Fellowship, in order to bridge the divide of knowledge and experience between DC and Silicon Valley for better outcomes for both. 

This fellowship will place you among the top tech decision makers in the United States government at a time when technology is reshaping society in fundamental ways. Even if you've never considered working in government, you should apply. The Congressional Innovation Fellowship will allow you to make change at the highest levels and at a scale unparalleled in the private or public sectors.

TechCongress has had great success with veterans and people with a deep understanding of issues important to veterans. This experience and perspective can be very valuable to members of Congress who want to improve the lives of veterans, and we encourage veterans to apply. 

Applicants should: 

- Have experience working in or with technology, and the ability to convey complex technical subjects to less-technically savvy individuals.

- Have some professional experience or be enrolled in or near completion of a graduate level program.

- Have a strong desire help build the Congressional Innovations Fellows program. As part of the 2020 class, fellows should expect to give ongoing feedback about fellowship activities, rapidly prototype and help build the pipeline for technological expertise into Congress.
