SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Beth Gaines, R-Rocklin, reminded constituents that the application deadline for the 2013-14 Jesse M. Unruh Assembly Fellowship Program is Feb. 11.
“The Assembly Fellowship Program is an incredible opportunity to get involved in the shaping of public policy in California,” said Gaines. “It also offers a firm foundation for achievement in both the public and private sector.”
For the duration of the 11-month program, Assembly Fellows work as legislative assistants for members of the Assembly or policy committees, while taking graduate seminars offered through California State University, Sacramento.
While no specific major is required to apply for the program, applicants must have earned their bachelor’s degree by September 2013. After the completion of the program, fellows receive 12 units of graduate credit, through the Center for California Studies at Sacramento State, which administers the program. Fellows earn a monthly stipend and health, dental, and vision benefits.

Assemblywoman Beth Gaines represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes portions of Placer, El Dorado, and Sacramento counties.
