SUBJ/CALENDAR YEAR 2023 NAVY LEGISLATIVE FELLOWSHIP CALL FOR APPLICATIONS//
AMPN/BUPERSINST 1560.21F, Navy Legislative Fellowship Program.//
Rmks/1. This NAVADMIN solicits applications for the 2023 Navy Legislative
Fellows Program. The Legislative Fellows Program allows naval officers,
senior enlisted and Department of the Navy civilians to broaden their
understanding of the legislative process and the operation of the U.S.
Congress through a year-long full-time assignment to the office of a member
of the House of Representatives or the Senate. The Legislative Fellows
Program also enhances the ability of the Navy to fulfill its role in the
national policy development process.
2. This is a highly competitive program. Records must reflect sustained
superior performance and potential for future assignments in critical
billets. Upon completion of the program, officers earn the legislative
fellowship Additional Qualification Designation (AQD 234).
3. Military Applicants. Participation is open to all Active Duty and Full-
Time Support unrestricted line, restricted line and staff corps officers in
the permanent grades of O-3 through O-5. Enlisted participation is open to
all Active Duty Navy occupational specialty codes in the permanent grades of
E-7 through E-9. The selection process will focus on individual performance,
promotion potential, academic and subspecialty qualifications, and needs of
the Navy and availability for follow-on assignment. Officers with permanent
change of station orders already issued will not be considered.
a. Applicants must be available for permanent change of station
assignment to Washington, DC, from November 2022 through December 2023.
During the fellowship, officers and senior enlisted Sailors will be assigned
to the Office of Legislative Affairs for administrative purposes. Upon
execution of orders, fellows agree to serve for three years following
completion or termination of the fellowship. A follow-on utilization tour in
legislative affairs is dependent on community-specific billet requirements,
needed officer progression and availability of legislative assignments. All
officer applicants must contact their detailers for counseling on the career
impact of participation in the Legislative Fellowship Program.
