Capital Fellows Program

>>Capital Fellows Program is an excellent way for people who are interested in government to get immersive experience. The amount of experience I’ve gotten from the Capital Fellows Program far out-strips anything I could have done by myself in one-two-maybe even three years.>>As a Capital Fellow, I am treated like a Legislative staffer. I help draft language for bills, I help run bills through the Legislative process.
