AMS Congressional Fellowship

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) will sponsor a Congressional Fellow from September 2022 through August 2023. The Fellow will spend the year working on the staff of either a member of Congress or a congressional committee, working in legislative and policy areas requiring scientific and technical input.

The Fellow brings his/her/their technical background and external perspective to the decision-making process in Congress. Prospective Fellows must be cognizant of and demonstrate sensitivity toward political and social issues and have a strong interest in applying personal knowledge toward solutions to societal problems.

Now in its 17th year, the AMS Congressional Fellowship provides a unique public policy learning experience, and demonstrates the value of science-government interaction. The program includes an orientation on congressional and executive branch operations, and a year-long seminar series on issues involving science, technology, and public policy.
Eligibility: The eligibility rules are as follows:
  • Applications are invited from individuals in the mathematical sciences.
  • Applicants must have a PhD or an equivalent doctoral-level degree by the application deadline (February 1, 2022).
  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Federal employees are not eligible.
Stipend amount: The stipend for the fellowship period (September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023) will be $93,013, with additional allowances for relocation and professional travel, as well as a contribution toward health insurance.

Applicants must submit a statement expressing interest and qualifications for the AMS Congressional Fellowship as well as a current curriculum vitae. Candidates must also have three letters of recommendation sent to the AMS by the February 1, 2022 deadline.
