Program Overview (from the program website):

The Ohio General Assembly, through the Ohio Legislative Service Commission (LSC), has sponsored a legislative fellowship program for over forty years. The LSC sponsors 23 - 24 paid thirteen-month legislative fellowship positions designed to provide college graduates with practical experience in the legislative process. This experience often leads to permanent employment opportunities in the legislature, state government, or related areas.

Traditionally, twenty fellows are assigned to work with the majority or minority party caucus in either the House or the Senate, with additional fellows being placed with the LSC research and fiscal staff and Ohio Government Telecommunications (OGT)/The Ohio Channel. Fellows assigned to a caucus normally engage in research, constituent services, writing speeches and news releases, and related administrative work. Fellows that work directly with the LSC staff draft legislation, perform legal or fiscal research, monitor sessions of the General Assembly, and attend committee meetings. The fellows assigned to OGT work as production assistants, where they assist in televising legislative sessions and in the production of public service communications.

The fellowship program begins the first week in December of each year and continues through December 31 of the following year. The application period begins January 1 of every year. The application deadline for the legislative fellowship positions is April 1. The application deadline for the telecommunications fellowship positions is May 31. The only eligibility requirement an applicant must meet is the completion of at least a bachelor's degree program by December.
