COLUMBUS - State Senator Frank Hoagland (R-Mingo Junction) today announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications through April 1, 2017 for the 2018 Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to serve in the Ohio General Assembly for the 2018 calendar year.

"For many, the highly regarded LSC fellowship program offers a unique fast track into public service careers," said Hoagland, "providing a great opportunity for recent graduates to learn more about the legislative process and state government."

Legislative fellows assist members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent correspondence, writing press releases, performing legislative research, attending meetings and performing various administrative tasks. 

Telecommunications fellows aid in televising Senate and House sessions and committee hearings, as well as in preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.

Fellows are paid $31,200 per year and will receive full state of Ohio employee benefits, with the chance to earn a $2,000 bonus determined by length of service to the program.

The Legislative Fellowship Program is open to applicants of all major fields of study who desire to learn more about state government; no political experience is required. Prospective telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field or have comparable experience. To be eligible for either program, applicants must have obtained a bachelor’s degree from a four-year college program by the December start date. Applicants with graduate or professional degrees may also apply.

Legislative fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2017 to earn consideration for the program. The deadline for telecommunications applicants is April 30, 2017.
