Applications call for Urban Leaders Fellowship 2021. The Urban Leaders Fellowship is a paid summer fellowship for professionals who come from various backgrounds, professions, ideologies, and experiences with a sincere commitment to transform communities through people and partnerships.
The Fellowships look for applicants who are diverse, in every sense of the word. It brings together a cohort of fellows in each region who come from different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and have wide-ranging experiences in the topics they’ve studied, the places they’ve lived, and the work that they’ve done. Furthermore, it believes that diversity matters and will bring about better solutions.
Fellows partner with an elected official, spending half their time on a critical policy project. These leaders have a vision for how their city can improve, and you’ll work alongside them to make that vision a reality. In order to impact real and lasting change, smart policy is not enough. Thus, fellows spend the other half of their time working with an innovative partner organization, from non-profits to tech startups, committed to social justice & community impact.
Applicants don’t need specific background in legislative policy to join our fellowship, just a passion to learn about policy and how it can impact the lives of those in your community.
