Graduate School Fellowship Opportunity

The Connecticut Legislature’s Office of Legislative Research (OLR) seeks qualified, current graduate school students to help its staff conduct policy and legal research from January 4, 2017 to June 7, 2017. Selected candidates will perform timely research for legislators proposing new laws and policies during the 2017 legislative session. Seasoned OLR professionals will provide the fellows with training and review each draft research report. Finished reports will be delivered to legislators and published on the OLR website. There is no “busywork” in this opportunity.

Candidates for the fellowship should possess excellent writing and analytical skills and must have completed at least one year towards a graduate degree in public administration, government, law, public policy, political science, criminal justice, or a related field.

Selected students will be required to work 15 to 20 hours per week. The fellowship is unpaid. Participants may, however, earn credit from their college or university. Qualified students should submit a resume and cover letter via email by November 9 to John.D.Moran@cga.ct.gov at OLR (please include “graduate fellowship” in the subject line).
