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 18-25 years old. They are college sophomores, 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 or fall experience.

How to Apply

We are no longer accepting applications to PolitiCorps Fall 2016. We will put up an application for PolitiCorps 2016 in January, so keep your eyes out!

1. First Round. Answer a few short questions. Tell us what motivates you, and why you think PolitiCorps is a good fit for you this year.

2. Full Application. Strong candidates will be provided information about how to complete the full application, and a link to the online form.

3. Interview with the Director. Excellent applicants will be offered the opportunity to interview via Skype with the PolitiCorps Director, Amy Kessler.


We will begin accepting applications for PolitiCorps Summer 2016 on January 11, 2016. Early applications are due on March 21st and we’ll start accepting fellows right away. We will be accepting applications through April 25th, but we only accept 12-15 fellows each summer so the sooner you get your application in the better!


More questions? Fair enough.
