Columbus - 
State Senator Kevin Bacon (R - Minerva Park) announced today that the Ohio  Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative  Fellowship Program.  

The Legislative Service Commission has sponsored this unique, well-respected program for over  45 years.  It seeks to take a diverse set of bright, enthusiastic individuals and provide them with  experience in state government and promote life-long careers in public service.  Over its long  history, LSC Fellows have gone on to become prominent attorneys, business leaders, and public  office holders. 

'The Fellowship Program is an excellent way to gain experience in state government,' said  Senator Bacon. 'The skills and experiences that Fellows take from the program will have a  positive impact on the rest of their careers, no matter where life takes them.'

Approximately 20 Legislative Fellows are assigned to serve in the four legislative caucuses  within the General Assembly.  These individuals take on a variety of responsibilities including  constituent outreach, speechwriting, legislative research, and staffing committees.  Additionally,  two telecommunications fellows will work at the Ohio Channel and assist in capturing the daily  activities of the Statehouse.  The Fellowship is a full-time, paid position with the same benefits  available to other state employees.

Legislative Fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2012, while the  deadline for the telecommunications positions is May 31, 2012.  All applicants must have  obtained a bachelor's degree by December 2012.  Those with graduate or professional degrees  are also encouraged to apply.   

The program is open to graduates in all areas of study who have a genuine interest in learning  about state government.  The two telecommunications fellows, however, must have either  majored or minored in a telecommunications-related program or have comparable experience.
