Congresswoman Katherine Clark is seeking a wounded or disabled veteran for a two-year paid fellowship in her Malden district office.
"Our service members contribute so much to our country," said Congresswoman Clark. "This fellowship opens another door to government services for our veterans while allowing our office to harness their skills and learn from their unique perspectives."
The veteran chosen for the special fellowship will work with district office staff to support a robust constituent services operation, including assisting with veteran's casework. The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide opportunities for wounded and/or disabled veterans to work for Congress.
The program is limited to veterans who meet all of the following requirements: Honorably discharged, released from active duty within the last five years, terminal pay grades at or below E-5 or O-3, 20% or greater service-connected disabilities (waived if you have a Purple Heart). Veterans who are in receipt of a 20-year or Temporary Early Retirement Authorization (TERA) retirement are not eligible for the program.
