The American Institute of Physics will be selecting an additional Congressional Fellow to work on Capitol Hill starting in the Fall of 2009. The expansion of the AIP Congressional Fellowship program from one Fellow to two Fellows is made possible due to increased support from two of the AIP Member Societies: the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and AVS: Science and Technology of Materials, Interfaces and Processing. One Fellow will be sponsored by AIP and ASA, and the second Fellow will be sponsored by AIP and AVS.
