The program is sponsored jointly by the Center for California Studies and the California State Senate. Fellows will be selected to serve as full-time Senate staff for 11 months beginning in October. Fellows are assigned to the personal or committee office of a Senator and work as a part of the public policy staff team in the Capitol.
