ILBCF Fellowship Application

Deadline December 12, 2016

The ILBCF’s council on Council on Urban Affairs will be hosting three fellows during the 2017 legislative session. Our fellows will be tasked with; issue development, legislative drafting, creating facts sheets, serving as the ILBCF’s policy expert, communications and attending several seminars to help them discover more aspects of state government. The fellowship program doesn’t require students to be in Springfield, but they will be required to remotely work with the foundation to advance its policy agenda. Fellows will be provided with a $2,500 stipend for their semester of work (January 15, 2017 – June, 2017) and also cover travel expenses to Springfield for meetings.


This application is for potential research fellows for the upcoming 2017 legislation session. Applicants should be enrolled at an accredited institution of higher learning, and have reached their junior year or above (to Ph.D). Students must have a 2.7 G.P.A. or above.
