ASME Offers Fellowships

March 19, 1999

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is seeking candidates for the White House Executive Office Fellowship and for the Congressional Fellowship.

The White House Fellow will serve a one-year appointment in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to support the U.S. Innovation Partnership's state-federal technology partnership activities aimed at enhancing state-federal cooperation and technology-based economic growth.

The Congressional Fellow will participate directly in the lawmaking process. The Fellows typically choose placement with congressional committees with authority over science and technology programs.

Among the qualifications necessary for becoming a White House Fellow are:

  • an advanced degree or equivalent work experience;
  • clear understanding of the roles of federal R&D programs and state S&T programs;
  • leadership and organizational skills necessary to direct, manage and coordinate administrative and programmatic activities; and,
  • the ability to discern opportunities for state-federal technology programs and to present such opportunities effectively.

For more information on either of the fellowships, contact Allian Pratt at 202/785-3756 or via e-mail at pratta@asme.org
