Hottinger Encourages Residents Interested in State Government to Apply for LSC Fellowship Program
May 27, 2021
Columbus, OH—Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) is reminding constituents interested in a career in state government that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission (LSC) is accepting applications until June 21, 2021 for its 13-month Legislative Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to work with members of the Ohio General Assembly during 2022.

“The Legislative Service Commission Fellows I have had the privilege of working with are incredibly smart and driven individuals who have gone on to great careers in government and the private sector,” Hottinger said. “I encourage any new college graduates to apply to this meaningful fellowship because they will acquire the experience and skills necessary to be successful in life.”

Legislative fellow duties include assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, writing press releases and speeches, assisting in legislative research, attending meetings, and performing administrative duties. Media Production fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and in preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.

Fellows receive full state of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $33,800 per year, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000 bonus based on length of service in the program.

Additionally, the application deadline for LSC’s two media production positions is May 31, 2021. All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the end of December 2021. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may also apply. The legislative fellowship program is open to graduates of all major fields of study who have a genuine interest in learning about state government, and no political experience is required. The two media production fellows must have majored or minored in a media production-related field of study or have comparable experience.
