Columbus - 
State Senator Kris Jordan (R- Powell) recently announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission (LSC) is accepting applications for the 2013 Fellowship class. Those accepted to the program will receive full-time, paid fellowships that include the same health and retirement benefits that are given to state employees. "Fellows who participate in this program gain a higher understanding of the legislative process and play a key role at the Statehouse," Jordan said. "The fellowship is a great opportunity for many people, particularly those interested in a public service career." LSC Fellows will be assigned to work in all four legislative caucuses of the Ohio General Assembly - Senate Republican, Senate Democrat, House Republican, and House Democrat. Individuals chosen will take on diverse responsibilities including: constituent work, communications, legislative research, speechwriting, and various administrative duties. Moreover, two people with a telecommunications back round will be chosen to work at the Ohio Channel to assist in capturing the daily activities of the Statehouse. Those accepted to the program will receive full-time, paid fellowships that include the same health and retirement benefits that are given to state employees. Application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2012 for full consideration. The application deadline for the telecommunications positions is May 31, 2012. All interested applicants must have obtained a bachelor's degree by December of 2012. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees are also encouraged to apply. The fellowship program is open to all graduates who posses a genuine interest in learning about state government, and no political experience is required. The telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field of study or have comparable experience. For more information regarding the application process, please visit or contact the fellowship coordinators at (614) 466-3615.
