View Arthur H. Guenther Congressional Fellowship Program
OSA and SPIE offer a congressional fellowship program providing members with an invaluable opportunity of public policy learning. Fellows gain a perspective that enhances their industrial, academic or government careers and the optics community's ability to more effectively communicate with U.S. Congress. The Fellowship is an ideal way to spend an academic sabbatical or leave of absence from a company. The Arthur H. Guenther Congressional Fellow works in the office of a US Senator or Representative or with a congressional committee to get first-hand knowledge of congressional operations, contribute to the policymaking process, and forge links among the engineering, scientific, and public policy communities.
