    From ASCD Online:

    Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowships allow elementary and
    secondary math and science teachers to spend a year in Washington, D.C.
    Selected teachers spend up to a year in a Congressional office, the
    Department of Energy (DOE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the
    National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National
    Institutes of Health (NIH), the Department of Education (ED), or the White
    House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).

    The Fellows provide their educational expertise, experience, and personal
    insights to the offices where they work. Some of the contributions of
    Einstein Fellows have included drafting legislation and influencing policy
    that seek to improve K-16 education in the United States; initiating
    collaborations and establishing partnerships between federal agencies;
    designing and implementing national science, math, and technology education
    programs; creating Web-based science education programs; and establishing
    and evaluating national and regional programs centered on school reform and
    teacher preparation in science, mathematics, and technology.

    Fellows receive $4,500 a month plus moving expenses to and from Washington.
    They must be teaching full-time in a public or private elementary or
    secondary school and have a current teaching assignment with at least
    three-fourths of classroom contact hours in science, math, and/or
    technology (applies to secondary teachers

    Applications should be submitted online through the Department of Energy's
    Web-page devoted to the Fellows program ( http://www.orau.gov/einstein/ ).
