Legislative Fellowship Program
COLUMBUS - State Senator Bill Beagle (R-Tipp City) today announced that
the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications
through April 1, 2017 for the 2018 Legislative and Telecommunications
Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to serve in the
Ohio General Assembly for the 2018 calendar year.
"Legislative fellows play an invaluable role in managing the process
associated with developing public policy," said Beagle. "This program
gives recent graduates the opportunity to work alongside leaders in
public service, equipping them with unparalleled experience in the work
of state government."
Legislative fellows assist members of the Ohio General Assembly with
constituent correspondence, writing press releases, performing
legislative research, attending meetings and performing various
Telecommunications fellows aid in televising Senate and House sessions
and committee hearings, as well as in preparing educational video
productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.
Fellows are paid $31,200 per year and will receive full state of Ohio
employee benefits, with the chance to earn a $2,000 bonus determined by
length of service to the program.
The Legislative Fellowship Program is open to applicants of all major
fields of study who desire to learn more about state government; no
political experience is required. Prospective telecommunications
fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related
field or have comparable experience. To be eligible for either program,
applicants must have obtained a bachelor’s degree from a four-year
college program by the December start date. Applicants with graduate or
