The Stennis Center is accepting nominations from Members of Congress of outstanding senior-level Congressional staff for selection as a Stennis Congressional Staff Fellow for the 115th Congress.

The Stennis Congressional Staff Fellows Program is a practical, bipartisan leadership development exercise for senior-level staff of the United States Congress. The program focuses on future challenges to Congress as an institution of American democracy and the leadership role played by senior Congressional staff in meeting those challenges. Each group is balanced by party and chamber and meets six to eight times over a 15-18 month period, with times and locations selected to be convenient to Fellows.

Stennis Fellows are chiefs of staff, legislative directors, counsels, committee staff directors and senior professional staff in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who have established distinguished records of public service. Each Member of Congress may submit only one nomination for consideration by an independent panel that will choose 28 to 32 participants.

The deadline for receipt of the nomination form is Monday, March 20, 2017.
