Fellowship Overview

Fellowship Name
Riesen Fellow in Public Affairs

Site
Office of Congressman Jim Leach
Washington, DC

Aims of the Fellowship
It has been my unique experience during the course of this fellowship to work for a Representative of the United States Congress both as part of the campaign staff and as part of the Washington, DC office staff, both of which provide vastly different and yet significant insights into the worlds of federal politics. The intent of my receipt of the Riesen Fellowship for Public Affairs was to be able to enjoy a great degree of experiential education through internships both at the United States Congress in Washington, DC and as a part of the field office staff in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, IA.
