Since 2009, ISF has been providing scholarships, internships, fellowships, and film grants to students majoring in law, policy, film, and media with the goal of empowering American Muslims who are shaping public policy and influencing public opinion.
The goal of the fellowship is for participants to work in congressional offices and to become well-versed in the creation and implementation of policy. In addition, fellows will learn how to shape policies in a way that is inclusive and doesn't undermine the needs of any marginalized group.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate potential in impacting public policy and working for the government, alignment with the ISF mission and vision, excellent communication, and leadership.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY FOR THE MUSLIM CONGRESSIONAL FELLOWSHIP:
- Graduated from an accredited university;
- U.S. Citizen, U.S. green card holder, or DACA recipient;
- Minimum of one year of professional experience in the field of policy. Two to three years of experience is preferred.
- Applicants should have a proven commitment to a career in policy-making and public service.
This program offers a salary of $35,000 for the 9-month fellowship. For more information, visit our website.
The application will be open on a rolling basis until a fellowship candidate has been confirmed.
