Funded Opportunities for Civically Engaged Students!

The Roosevelt Network develops and supports undergraduate college students —in particular, those who hold identities historically denied political power—to be the next generation of leaders in the progressive policy ecosystem. They are encouraging students to apply to their Fellowship programs. The first round application deadline is December 18th. 

They are currently recruiting for two, stipended, fellowship programs: the Emerging Fellowship and the Roosevelt in Washington Fellowship. Student fellows receive a $3,000 stipend, policy and leadership training, and opportunities to explore policy aligned careers.

Below is a quick overview of the two programs they are recruiting for, so you get a better sense of what they do:

Roosevelt in Washington (RIW) Fellowship Emerging Fellowship 
Transformational opportunity for undergraduate students in the last 1-2 years of their bachelors degree program to gain real world policy experience through placement in an 8-week (paid) summer internship in Washington, DC. RIW fellows will go through a 6 week bootcamp, focused on policy and leadership skills training, ahead of their summer internship experience. Fully funded housing and public transportation for the duration of the internship.Academically rigorous policy research and writing opportunity for undergraduate students in the last 1-2 years of their bachelors degree program, where they will write a short policy brief to be published by the Roosevelt Institute. Emerging Fellows are paid and will be deeply supported in their research and policy writing, with opportunities for mentorship and exploration of graduate school pathways.

“As a professional who trains and mentors the next generation of transformative leaders, I can attest to the power of the Network as a meaningful home for progressive, civically engaged, passionate young people who want to use their gifts to shape a better world. Interested in staying up to date on Roosevelt Network opportunities for your students? Sign up to be a part of the Roosevelt Network community – we have many transformational opportunities opening up this year!
