Advocacy Fellowship – Aug 31

Posted by uAspire on August 4, 2020

Through a paid fellowship program, uAspire supports college students to build advocacy skills and execute campaigns to influence policy leaders with changes needed in higher education affordability and equity. Students are the primary consumers of higher education, so their expertise should drive policy changes!

Interested in policy and advocacy on college affordability. People of color, first-generation, working, returning-to-college and other under-represented college students are encouraged to apply!

What: $1,000 stipend for roughly 60-hour commitment including training, research, individual and group projects for advocacy communication campaigns at local and national level.

Where: Entirely virtual engagement with teammates from California, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts. Requires access to internet and laptop with video camera for web-conferencing.

When: September 22 – December 17, 2020. Weekly sessions on Tuesdays and six Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 ET/1:00-2:00 PT for training, regional working groups, and a national campaign. Independent coaching and team meetings to be scheduled as needed to complete advocacy deliverables.
