Technology & Engineering Professionals with Government Each year, IEEE-USA sponsors
government fellowships for three qualified IEEE members. The fellows — chosen by
the IEEE-USA Government Fellows Committee and confirmed by
Board — spend a year in Washington serving as advisers to the
U.S. Congress and to key
U.S. Department of State decision-makers.
Known as either a Congressional Fellowship or an Engineering & Diplomacy Fellowship,
this program links science, technology and engineering professionals with government,
and provides a mechanism for IEEE's U.S. members to learn firsthand about the public
policy process while imparting their knowledge and experience to policymakers.
