California Senate Fellowship

California Senate Fellowship

The California Senate Fellows program was established in 1973 to provide participants with insight into the legislative process. The fellowship program's primary goals include exposing people with diverse life experiences and backgrounds to the legislative process and providing research and other professional staff assistance to the Senate. Eighteen Fellows will be selected to serve as full-time Senate staff for 11 months. Fellows are assigned to Member and committee offices and work as part of the public policy staff team in the Capitol. Responsibilities include helping develop legislative proposals, researching and analyzing bills, responding to constituent inquiries, and writing press releases and speeches. Fellows receive a monthly stipend of $1,972 plus full health, vision, and dental benefits. They also earn graduate credit from the Sacramento State Government Department. This fellowship has an application deadline of late February. For more information, please email the California Senate Fellows Program at [email protected].
