COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) today announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its prestigious 13-month Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship programs. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to work with members of the Ohio General Assembly during 2017.

"This one of a kind fellowship offers unique insight into the day-to-day operations of the General Assembly," said Peterson. "With many notable alumni, including our very own Governor John Kasich, the prestigious LSC fellowship is a wonderful opportunity for young people interested in public service careers."

LSC fellows are immersed in the Ohio legislative process by assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, writing press releases and speeches, assisting in policy research, attending meetings and performing administrative duties. Telecommunications fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and in preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.

Fellows receive full state of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $31,200 per year, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000 bonus based on length of service in the program.

Legislative fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2016 to be considered for the program. The application deadline for the telecommunications applicants is April 30, 2016.

All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the December start date. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may 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.
