The Supreme Court Fellows Commission is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Supreme Court Fellows Program. Each year, the Commission selects four talented individuals to engage for one year in the work of the Supreme Court of the United States, the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, the Federal Judicial Center, or the United States Sentencing Commission. Through hands-on participation, fellows gain unique insight into the challenges of federal court management. The Commission is especially interested in applicants who are completing a judicial clerkship and are interested in broadening their understanding of the judicial system through exposure to federal court administration. Supreme Court Fellows become employees of the federal court system and receive salaries equivalent to GS-12/1 of the government pay scale. Fellows are eligible for health, life insurance, and other benefits programs offered to federal employees.
