The George Washington University Regulatory Studies Fellowship offers a unique, cross-cutting perspective on how federal regulations are developed. Experience in the Office of Management and Budget is invaluable for anyone interested in working in or with the federal government, and the Office of Information & Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) within OMB is the key policy coordination office for federal regulatory, statistical, and information policy.

Recipients of the Regulatory Studies Summer OMB Fellowship will receive $5,000 in three installments and are expected to complete 35 hours per week for 12 weeks. Complete applications must be submitted by midnight on February 21 to

GW Regulatory Studies Fellows work under the guidance of OIRA policy analysts to coordinate inter-agency review of selected federal regulations under Executive Order 12866. Fellows analyze regulatory influence (benefits, costs and qualitative effects) of selected regulations and collections of information, and coordinate with other federal agencies to ensure the regulations are consistent with statutory intent, administration policy and regulatory principles.

Successful applicants will:

  • Be enrolled in the Trachtenberg School during academic year 2013-2014.
  • Have completed PPPA 6014: Economics in Policy Analysis or equivalent coursework in applied intermediate microeconomics. (Completion of PPPA 6015: Benefit-Cost Analysis and/or PPPA 6085.12: Regulatory Comment Clinic is desirable, but not necessary.)
