State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission (LSC) is now accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative Fellowship Program. LSC will hire twenty-plus fellows to work in the Ohio legislature or with the Ohio Channel.


“The Legislative Service Commission Fellowship is a great opportunity for current college seniors and recent graduates to experience working at the Statehouse,” Rep. Clyde said. “I strongly encourage individuals with an interest in public policy to apply for this esteemed program.”


LSC fellows are often placed in legislator offices where duties include assisting with constituent services, legislative research, communications work, arranging and attending meetings and events and performing administrative duties. Fellows that work directly with the LSC staff draft legislation, perform legal or fiscal research, monitor sessions of the General Assembly and attend committee meetings. Fellows assigned to the Ohio Channel work as production assistants, where they assist in televising legislative sessions and in the production of public service communications.


Applicants to the LSC Fellowship must have graduated from a four-year college degree program in any major field by the December 2014 start date and have a genuine interest in learning about state government.  Those holding graduate or professional degrees are also encouraged to apply. LSC fellows are full-time, paid employees with benefits. Application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2014 to be considered for the legislative fellowship. The application deadline for the Ohio Channel fellowship is May 31, 2014.


For more information or for an application, please contact the fellowship coordinator at the Ohio Legislative Service Commission by calling (614) 466-3615 or visiting www.lsc.state.oh.us/fellowship.
