Grants to this Grantee
for support of TechCongress  
Tech Congress, a program at New America Foundation, places computer scientists, engineers, and other technologists in Congressional offices through its one-year Congressional Innovation Fellowship. Fellows’ work spans issues such as election security, data privacy, artificial intelligence ethics, the future of work, defense technology, and regulations for autonomous vehicle and drones. TechCongress’s ultimate objective is to galvanize Capitol Hill to independently hire staff with technical skills, and to build its own internal mechanisms for sourcing technical expertise. TechCongress will have achieved success when Congress is solving its own tech deficit and TechCongress is no longer necessary.
