State Senator Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) announces the availability of applications for the 2009-10 California Senate Fellows program.
The program provides college graduates the opportunity to become full-time Senate staff members at the State Capitol in Sacramento for 11 months beginning in October 2009.
Fellows are assigned to the committee staff of a senator and also participate in seminars with officials.
The fellowship program is operated jointly by the California State Senate and the Center for California Studies at Cal State Sacramento.
A five week orientation at the beginning of the program provides background and training.
Fellows are paid a stipend and given health care. They also earn 12 units of graduate credit for the academic portion of the program.
An applicant must be at least 20 years of age and a graduate of a four-year college or university by Sept. 1.
Applications may be requested from Senator Huff’s district office in Glendora by calling (626) 914-5046 or the program office at (916) 278-7693. The deadline is Feb. 25.
Eighteen Fellows will be selected in May.
