Summer Fellowship in DC

The Eben Tisdale Fellowship, which includes a $5,000 grant, is a summer internship available to undergraduate and graduate students where the high-tech sector meets the government.  The program offers outstanding opportunities for students to learn about high tech public policy issues with hands-on experience in Washington, D.C.  Tisdale Fellowships are open to students from colleges and universities all over the country.

The Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship, which includes one $5,000 grant for one student each year, is part of the Tisdale Fellowship program. Any student, undergraduate or graduate, who is interested in diversity and ethics issues, and in learning about high-tech public policy issues, can apply for this Fellowship.

The application for both of these Fellowships is the same, except that those applying for the Dell Thurmond Woodard Fellowship should include an additional essay on diversity and ethics.The Fellowship has two main elements:

(1) Internship:
Fellows participate an eight-week internship in the government relations office of a leading high technology company or association.  In the recent past, fellows have interned at such companies as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Philips Electronics and Monster Worldwide, as well as associations such as theBusiness Software Alliance or TechAmerica.

(2) Issues Seminar:  The issues seminar is a weekly lunch hosted by the different sponsoring companies and associations.  Expert speakers lead discussions of current public policy issues in Washington, and the methods the high technology industry uses for effective advocacy.

The Summer 2010 Fellowship runs from June 14th
– August 6th, 2010. The goal of the Fellowship is to create a supportive and collegial environment in which a new class of public policyprofessionals will be mentored to help ensure that the high-tech industry continues to have highly capable and well-trained individuals in both policyadvocacy and senior management positions. The Final deadline for all applications is February 15, 2010.
