Welcome to the Capitol Hill Fellows Program Application Site!

The Capitol Hill Fellows Program is a year-­long program that places a group of Teach For America alumni in full­-time, paid congressional staff positions on Capitol Hill starting in the summer of 2019. These positions offer Fellows incredible insights into the legislative process and an opportunity to gain experience in national policy and government, contributing important voices and perspectives to the legislative branch in Washington, DC. Fellows receive a salary and participate in ongoing professional development. The Fellows do not lobby on behalf of Teach For America or work on issues related to Teach For America during this fellowship, but instead work on issues assigned by a member of Congress or congressional committee.
Please sign in to get started with your application. More information about the application process, including details about the fellowship term and benefits, can be found on our website

The first round for the 2019 Fellows Program application opens on December 3, 2018 and closes on January 31, 2019 at 11:59pm EST. Fellows will be selected by the end of May 2019. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
