Columbus - 
State Senator Troy Balderson (R- Zanesville) announced today that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative Fellowship Program. The commission will hire 20-plus fellows to work with members of the Ohio General Assembly throughout 2013. "This Fellowship is a great opportunity for anyone interested in pursuing a career in public service," Balderson said. "Not only does the program offer an inside look at the legislative process, but it also prepares participants for careers in public service." Those chosen for fellowship assist members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, communications, legislative research, and various administrative duties. Additionally, a pair of telecommunications fellows will be selected to work at the Ohio Channel to assist in capturing the daily activities of the Statehouse. The Fellowship is a full-time, paid position as participants receive $25,400 - $27,400 annually and are eligible for the same benefits available to other state employees. Legislative fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2012 for full consideration. The application deadline for the two telecommunications positions is May 31, 2012. All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by December of 2012. 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 telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field of study or have comparable experience. For more information or for an application and instructions, please visit or contact the fellowship coordinators at (614) 466-3615.
Senator Balderson represents Ohio's 20th Senate District, which is made up of Athens, Coshocton, Guernsey, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington Counties
