RESULTS Organizing and Advocacy Fellowship
Thank you for your interest in the RESULTS Organizing and Advocacy Fellowship. We are looking for the next generation of young leaders in the fight against poverty.

The RESULTS Fellowship seeks to inspire and train new advocates in the movement to influence political decisions that will bring an end poverty. The Fellowship is an opportunity for young adults (age 20-30) to broaden their experience and knowledge in the operations and organization of Congress while advocating on key poverty issues, like global health and affordable housing. RESULTS provides training and support to speak powerfully, engage with the media, advocate directly to members of Congress, and mobilize your community. RESULTS has proven over the past 40 years that when people like you use their voices effectively, we can make progress towards the end of poverty. Learn more about RESULTS at www.results.org.

RESULTS is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization whose movement of advocates works together toward equity and the end of poverty. The Fellowship is a 12-month program in which participants develop their leadership skills as they gain hands-on experience through RESULTS advocacy campaigns. Key campaigns in 2020 will include global child survival, nutrition, and affordable housing in the United States.

Before completing the application, please review all program details and requirements at www.results.org/fellowship.

If there are difficulties completing this application, or for other questions, please email fellowship@RESULTS.org.

Applications, interviews, and acceptance will happen on a rolling basis, with a final deadline of April 30. Early application strongly encouraged.

Your answer
The RESULTS Fellowship kicks off in May 2020. There will be two face-to-face events in Washington, DC, and virtual gatherings throughout the year. The first face-to-face meeting will be at the RESULTS International Conference in June 2020, where attendance is mandatory. RESULTS will arrange and cover cost for hotel, flight and some meals. There will be a $250 registration fee. We're committed to making sure finances aren't an obstacle for attendance for any accepted fellow, and we can support you to fundraise for the fee. At the conference, fellows are housed two to a room. Accepted fellows will be able to communicate confidentially with our events manager about any rooming assignment concerns.
Can you attend the entire RESULTS International Conference from June 19th-June 24, 2020 in Washington, DC (travel arranged by RESULTS)? *

It is a requirement that each fellow commit up to 6 hours a week to this Fellowship, engaging in the curriculum and attending bi-weekly webinars on Wednesday nights at 9pm EST. This will be a crucial time for training and skill building. Attendance is mandatory. Do you agree to commit this time to the fellowship? *
It is a requirement to attend a monthly webinar on the first Saturday afternoon of every month (1pm EST). This will be another crucial time for training and skill building. Can you commit to this time for the fellowship? *
Building political will requires a broad spectrum of engaged citizens working together. If you're selected for an interview, we'll let you know if there's an active chapter in your area. Are you committed to helping RESULTS grow by either starting a new group or working with an existing local group? *
