State Senator Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton) announced today that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications through April 1, 2015 for the 2016 Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship Program.  The Commission will hire 24 fellows to serve in the Ohio General Assembly for the 2016 calendar year.

“I can tell you first hand that the LSC fellows not only get a wonderful experience, but they also became an integral part of the legislative staff,” Oelslager said.

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

Fellows will receive full state of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $28,000 per year, 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, 2015 to earn consideration for the program.  The deadline for telecommunications applicants is May 31, 2015.
