Co-sponsored by the Institute for Public Administration University of Delaware and the Delaware General Assembly

Begun in 1982, the Legislative Fellows Program links the research capacity of the University of Delaware with the research needs of the Delaware General Assembly. For students, who are selected through a University-wide competition, the experience offers a valuable opportunity to observe and contribute to the governmental decision-making process. Through their nonpartisan, in-depth research, Fellows assist legislators in dealing with critical issues facing the state. In recent years, Fellows have worked on areas as diverse as healthcare policy, education reform, and public safety. Any full-time University of Delaware graduate student or senior-level undergraduate student is eligible to apply.

Program Highlights

  • Legislative Fellows work directly with members of the Delaware General Assembly providing timely, nonpartisan research assistance while gaining a deeper understanding of the legislative process.
  • Fellows serve 20 hours per week (Tues./Wed./Thurs.) from Jan. 2–June 30, 2013. Travel to Dover is by UD vanpool.
  • Fellows are paid a competitive hourly rate.
  • Fellows make important contacts with local government officials and business and community leaders.
  • Fellows take a three-credit seminar, State Government: Management and Policy, as part of the program.
