About the Legislative Fellows Program

Begun as a partnership between the University of Delaware and the Delaware General Assembly in 1982, the Legislative Fellows Program is now sponsored in cooperation with Delaware State University and Wesley College. The program expanded in 2014 to include the Division of Research in Legislative Council. The program is managed by the Institute for Public Administration's Lisa Moreland (MPA '98).

Our 14 Legislative Fellows will commence their research at Legislative Hall in Dover on January 14, 2020. During their tenure, the Fellows will be assisting legislators to respond to constituent concerns, conduct nonpartisan research on cutting-edge public policy issues, and staff committees. Staffing committees is a task that, in larger states, is conducted by full-time employees. Our Legislative Fellows count themselves lucky to be given such a prestigious and challenging responsibility.

Profiles of the selected students can be found on the 2020 Legislative Fellows page.
