PolitiCorps Summer connects college students and recent graduates with careers in the public interest (and the skills to rock ‘em)

Who Should Apply?

PolitiCorps Fellows are 20-24 years old. They are college juniors, seniors and recent graduates (alternative educational backgrounds welcome) who have demonstrated commitment to progressive values. Fellows hold a deep interest in the political process and public policy. PolitiCorps Fellows come from every state in the nation, and from a diverse range of experiential and cultural backgrounds. Extensive campaign experience is not a prerequisite for PolitiCorps, but an understanding of campaign lifestyle does help Fellows make the most of the summer experience.
