COLUMBUS – State Representative Adam Holmes (R-Nashport) today announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is now accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative and Media Production Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to work with members of the Ohio General Assembly during 2022.
“The State Legislature is an incredible place for young people to work,” Holmes said. “In every meeting, every hearing and every bill is the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of the citizens of our district and great people across Ohio. I strongly encourage anyone who may be interested to apply for the LSC Fellowship Program. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Legislative fellow duties include assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work, writing press releases and speeches, assisting in legislative research, attending meetings and performing administrative duties. Media Production fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and in preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.
Fellows receive full state of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $33,800 per year, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000 bonus based on length of service in the program.
The application deadline for the two media production positions is May 31, 2021. Legislative fellowship application materials must be submitted by June 21, 2021 to be considered for the program. All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the end of December 2021. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may also 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 media production fellows must have majored or minored in a media production-related field of study or have comparable experience.
