“The LSC Fellowship Program offers participants an outstanding opportunity to gain first hand experience of the legislative process by allowing them to work alongside legislators and our staff," said Roegner. Fellows gain a uniquely personal view of the inner workings of state government. If you or someone you know is exploring a career in public service, I highly recommend taking a deeper look at all the LSC Fellowship Program has to offer."
Legislative fellows are immersed in the Ohio legislative process by assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, communications, legislative research, committee work, and performing various 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.
The legislative fellowship program is open to college graduates of all major fields of study who have a genuine interest in learning about state government, and no political experience is required. The media production fellow candidates must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field of study or have comparable experience. To be eligible, all applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the December 2020 start date. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may also apply.
Legislative fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2020 to be considered for the program. The application deadline for the media production fellowship applicants is May 31, 2020.
