The Borst Fellowship is a program the Indiana Senate offers to graduate students in IU Indianapolis' School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
The one-year fellowship provides students the opportunity to research fiscal policy and assist Senate leaders who are tasked with solving state financial issues. Borst Fellows interact with a wide variety of people – including legislators, legislative staff, directors of the executive branch, state agency staff, media and the general public.
Borst Fellows participate in the public policy process by tracking the bills with a fiscal impact, attending fiscal committees, attending session and tracking conference committee actions.
By the end of the fellowship, the selected candidate will have participated in each step of the public policy process, have a repertoire of professional policy skills and knowledge unmatched by any other opportunity.
One Borst Fellow is selected each year. Click below to apply for the Borst Fellowship.
