Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program

About the Program

The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established in 2008 to provide wounded and/or disabled veterans an opportunity to work for Congress. These two-year paid fellowships provide veterans with experience and exposure to broaden career opportunities. Positions are available in congressional Member offices nationwide. Wherever possible, those selected for the Program will be given the opportunity to transition into full-time employment. However, full-time employment is not guaranteed at the conclusion of the two-year fellowship.

"The Wounded Warrior fellowship Program has provided an environment in which I can apply the skills that I aquired during my time in service while honing in on the path that i want to take with my career. The program has also been a great resource in establishing networks with staff across Capitol Hill and has allowed me to experience unique opportunities"
