A good place to start is to investigate the background of the fellowship. Your best chance of success comes from first understanding the qualifications and making sure you meet them. At the outset seek to understand the driving force for the American Geophysical Union and their reason for offering the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship. Once that is done, you should determine if you have any likelihood to obtain the fellowship. Upon determining that you have a decent shot of actually being a recipient of the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship, then it is useful to fill out an application.

One critical detail in the process of trying for the fellowship is properly completing the forms. Applications can sometimes be drawn-out and boring, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that the forms are filled out accurately and completely. You don't want to get passed over on a technicality.

Once the application is sent off, it's important to know when the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship actually dispenses the resources so that you can know if you will be able to count on the fellowship to help meet your financial needs and what assistance it will provide, stipulations may exist in what can be paid with the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship. Recently it has become more burdensome to handle the increasing costs of education, and having the additional resources of the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship as a supplement to your own resources can provide significant support. If you are not fortunate to receive the AGU Congressional Science Fellowship, keep at it, search for additional fellowships and your persistence may be rewarded.
