Today we launch our online application process for the Class of 2022 of our Fellowship program. After a successful inaugural class in 2021, we are excited to bring the program back better than ever.
Doubling our class size this summer, we are proud to bring this incredible opportunity to more young people around the country. During the program, American Moment organizes and pays fellows $3000 per month for 3 months, placing them at an internship on Capitol Hill or in the public policy non-profit sphere in Washington, D.C.
The stipends are the highest-paying opportunity for young people looking to serve as interns in our nation’s capital. It is designed to be livable and not require outside housing supplementation, and young people of all economic means are encouraged to apply. In keeping with the tradition of this program, it is not required that applicants have college degrees or prior political experience for admission. You can learn more about last year’s class of fellows here.
The steepest hill to climb for any young person looking to get involved in politics or public policy is to get their first job—the first institution willing to credential them with their dollar and reputation in affiliation. One day per week, fellows will join American Moment staff, allied organizations, and public policy leaders for seminars designed to supplement their on-the-job education and teach them the foundations of public policy across American Moment’s issue priorities. Moreover, networking activities and other exciting opportunities are offered so that any Fellowship member has the opportunity to meet new like-minded peers and mentors.
