"The purpose of the Congressional Fellowships program is to bring technical and science backgrounds and external perspectives to the decision-making process in Congress. Typically, fellows conduct legislative or oversight work, assist in congressional hearings and debates, prepare briefs and write speeches as a part of their daily responsibilities. By applying their scientific expertise in this policy environment, Extavour and White will help to broaden awareness of the value of scientist- and engineer-government interaction."
