Journalism fellowship to study Congress

I'm an alumnus, and I highly recommend this program:

The American Political Science Association's Congressional Fellowship Program gives "early- to mid-career journalists an opportunity to learn more about Congress and the legislative process through direct participation."

The nine-month fellowship includes a $38,000 stipend and small travel allowance; a comprehensive orientation in November; office assignments as full-time legislative aides in the House of Representatives and/or Senate from December to August; and field trips (including a week in an international capital); and seminars with leading journalists, scholars and government officials.

Applications must be sent by December 1.
