Students for a New American Politics offers the fix: we provide fellowships for underrepresented students to work on progressive congressional campaigns. SNAP recruits and chooses outstanding people from across the country to work as Field Organizers on competitive races during the summer, and then gives them the necessary training and stipend to succeed in the field.
Our fellows are not interns. They primarily lead volunteers and direct many of the grassroots activities and organizing on the campaign. In this meaningful role, our fellows learn many tangible political skills to apply to other campaigns and positions.
Often, our fellows continue working with the campaign past the fellowship term and through the election in November. They prove themselves as outstanding contributors and will frequently receive promotions to other roles on the campaign
While our fellowship only lasts for one election, our impact lasts forever. SNAP fellows change American politics, and the SNAP fellowship can be a critical launchpad towards success.
2nd Round Deadline: March 2, 2018
Applying in the 1st round does not necessarily improve your chance of receiving a SNAP Fellowship.
Each application will receive two readings. 1st round applicants will receive a notification by the end of January if they are selected for an interview, and decisions will be released by the end of February.
2nd round applicants will receive a notification by mid-March if they are selected for an interview, and decisions will be released by the end of March.
Note that a waitlist decision should not be treated as a rejection, as we will accept some waitlisted applicants.
