Jobs & Scholarship Opportunities
Attention Undergradute & Graduate Students !!
TechCongress is recruiting for the 2020 Congressional Innovation Scholars program through Sunday 3/15: https://www.techcongress.io/congressional-innovation-scholars.
We wanted to reach out one more time before the application deadline. Are there any groups or prospective candidates you'd be willing to share information with?
The fellowship places recent graduate students in CS, engineering, data science and other technical fields to serve as tech policy advisors to top Members of Congress (offices like Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and the House Homeland Security Committee).
It's a ten month paid program ($55,000 annual-equivalent stipend) with other benefits and fellows have done incredible works like:
- Passing the OPEN Government Data Act into law.
- Investigating and organizing hearings about Cambridge Analytica, voting machine vulnerability, and facial recognition technology.
- Securing changes to defense procurement policy to allow startups to better compete with big government contractors.
And you can nominate candidates for the program on our website! https://www.techcongress.io/nominate
