COLUMBUS—State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Hudson) today announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications through April 1, 2017 for its Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to serve in the Ohio General Assembly during 2018.
 
"Over the past six years I’ve had the pleasure of working with several dedicated young men and women who were part of the LSC Fellowship Program," said LaRose. "They were all given the unique opportunity to learn firsthand how Ohio policymakers shape our state’s future. Additionally, each of them contributed significantly to the work my office does to serve the Ohioans we represent."

LSC fellows are immersed in the Ohio legislative process by assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, writing press releases and speeches, assisting in policy research, attending meetings and performing administrative duties. Telecommunications fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and in preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.

“The knowledge and friendships gained from working in this fast-paced and challenging environment helps prepare the fellows for their future careers in or out of state government," LaRose added. 

Fellows receive full state of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $31,200 per year, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000 bonus based on length of service in the program.  
    
Legislative fellowship application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2017 to be considered for the program. The application deadline for the telecommunications applicants is April 30, 2017.  

All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the December start date. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may apply. The legislative fellowship program is open to graduates of all major fields of study who have a genuine interest in learning about state government, and no political experience is required. The two telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field of study or have comparable experience.
