The Legislative Fellow is a BSCES member who serves as a technical resource for the Massachusetts State House. The Legislative Fellow works with the staff of the Joint Committee on Transportation on current issues that can benefit from the input of an engineer. Most efforts focus on transportation and infrastructure initiatives but can vary. The Legislative Fellow has the opportunity to solve real world problems at the State House that impact the Commonwealth. This highly visible position also provides the participant an opportunity to serve the public while giving back to BSCES and the civil engineering profession. Other benefits include office space at the State House, access to State House News Service, access to state house tours, attendance at legislative conferences, access to the legislative chamber, and the ability to meet and work with our legislators. Legislative Fellows develop a further appreciation of how rules and regulations are developed and how competing interests are balanced. The Legislative Fellow receives a stipend from BSCES dependent on time of service.
The application deadline is March 31, 2023 for the Fellowship year beginning in September 2023 and ending on July 31, 2024, the probable end of the legislature’s current formal session. In some cases, the end date may be extended up to two months if the Commonwealth’s budget has not been approved or if legislation is pending on issues which the Legislative Fellow has participated. For more information, visit the BSCES Legislative Fellow page on the BSCES website and see the application process.
