Congressional Fellowship


2022 Racial Equity Fellowship

Program Overview

The APAICS Congressional Fellowship is designed for young AAPI professionals looking to increase their experience in public policy and service. The full-time paid, 9-month program places fellows in congressional offices to gain policy experience as part of the legislative team. The program provides fellows with opportunities to build their leadership skills, encourages political engagement, and fosters interest in a public service career.

Applications are now open for our 2022 Congressional Racial Equity Fellowship program, in which Racial Equity fellows will research and analyze community-based recommendations along with key public policy initiatives that affect economic opportunity, structural racism, and health equity.

While working in Congressional members' offices, fellows will utilize their own experiences providing a racial lens in their field. Fellows will help draft public policy, attend briefings, observe committee hearings, conduct research, write speeches, and develop rapport with key leaders in all areas of social justice allowing for continued representation of Asian Americans in the public policy process. Additionally, the fellow will work with other fellows from existing relationships with the tri-caucus constituencies (The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute), educating other constituencies on Stop-Asian Hate while strengthening coalition building.
