Nominations for the 2020 Teach For America Capitol Hill Fellows Program
The Capitol Hill Fellows Program places a group of Teach For America alumni in yearlong, full-time, paid, congressional staff positions on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The program offers Fellows incredible insights into the legislative process and an opportunity to gain experience in policy-making at the national level. Fellows participate in monthly professional development sessions to enhance the skills necessary to grow as policy leaders. In addition, Fellows are paid a stipend of $60,000 over 12 months and have access to ongoing mentorship opportunities. Fellows do not lobby on behalf of Teach For America or work on issues related to Teach For America during this Fellowship, but instead work on issues assigned by a member of Congress or congressional committee. Each Fellow cohort reflects the diversity of Teach For America; Fellows represent many states and both political parties.
Applications for the 2020 Capitol Hill Fellows Program will open on Monday, December 2nd, 2019 and are due Wednesday, January 15th, 2020.
