FAQs

Q. What is the exact duration of the fellowship?
A.
 The Fellowship starts from the middle of June every year and concludes in the following April - May (subject to the Parliamentary calendar).

Q. I am looking for an internship. Is the LAMP Fellowship suitable for me?
A.
 The LAMP Fellowship is not an internship. In their work with MPs, LAMP Fellows work as full-time professionals. From time to time, short-term internship opportunities with PRS are available. Such opportunities will be announced on www.prsindia.org.
 
Q. As a LAMP Fellow can I pursue any other professional or academic engagement?
A.
LAMP Fellows are expected to commit to a full-time engagement with the Fellowship. The Fellows cannot pursue any additional academic or professional assignments during their engagement as a LAMP Fellow.
 
Q. What is the average number of working hours I need to put in?
A.
 The role of a LAMP Fellow requires a full-time commitment. The periods when Parliament is in session will be the busiest time of the year for anyone working with Parliamentarians, as it is for all of us at PRS.
MPs are usually in Parliament anytime between 10 am and 6 pm. MPs typically meet with their Fellows and assign work either before they go to Parliament or after they return. During the session LAMP, Fellows may have to brief their MPs on short notice on any matter.
Hence, during a session, the workload will be the maximum and the LAMP Fellow will need to be open to flexible working hours. The work of each LAMP Fellow will, therefore, differ greatly, depending on the work and requirements of their respective MPs.
