December 7, 2018 12:00 PM PST


Who is eligible for the Fellowship? 

NSI is looking for those individuals with a technical background and experience in the technology sector.  Applicants should be interested in engaging in technology policy making and learning how to explain technology to those who do not have a technical background.


I’m towards the beginning of my career; do I have the right qualifications for the Fellowship? 

Definitely!  We are looking for applicants from all professional levels who are committed to playing a role in the technology  policy making process.


Do I need formal technical training, like a computer science or engineering degree, to apply for the Fellowship? 

No – training can be formal (college, graduate school, the military) or informal (self-trained).


What if I don’t live in Washington, D.C.?

That is fine!  We encourage applicants from across the country to apply.  NSI will provide airfare and accommodations for fellows who do not live in the session host city.

 To get the full benefit of the program, attendance at all sessions is expected.


When will selections be made?

Early January 2019.
