Nominate a candidate to the Congressional Innovation Fellowship!
Technology is the infrastructure of daily life, touching every issue before Congress. Yet at our best count, there are only five staffers out of the 15,000 serving in the House and the Senate that have any formal technical training. Without expertise within the halls of Congress, Members and staff rely on lobbyists and interest groups for advice. We can and must do better.
You can help. Nominating a friend, family member or colleague will show him or her that you think they have what it takes to help bring our government into the 21st Century. Nominees will also gain access to exclusive events and trainings with some of the country's top technology leaders.
TechCongress will email nominees to let them know they have been nominated for the Congressional Innovation Fellowship, and include instructions about how to apply for the program.
