Paid Internship and Undergraduate Research Opportunities with the Roosevelt Network for Students with Identities Historically Denied Political Power

The Roosevelt Network develops and supports undergraduate college students —in particular, those who hold identities historically denied political power—to be the next generation of leaders in the progressive policy ecosystem.  I am reaching out to you today to see if you could encourage students on your campus to apply to our Fellowship programs. The first round application deadline is December 18th. We are currently recruiting for two, stipended, fellowship programs: the Emerging Fellowship and the Roosevelt in Washington Fellowship. Student fellows receive a $3,000 stipend, policy and leadership training, and opportunities to explore policy aligned careers.


Below is a quick overview of the two programs we are recruiting for, so you get a better sense of what we do:


Roosevelt in Washington (RIW) Fellowship 


Transformational opportunity for undergraduate students in the last 1-2 years of their bachelors degree program to gain real world policy experience through placement in an 8-week (paid) summer internship in Washington, DC. RIW fellows will go through a 6-week bootcamp, focused on policy and leadership skills training, ahead of their summer internship experience. Fully funded housing and public transportation for the duration of the internship.


Emerging Fellowship 


Academically rigorous policy research and writing opportunity for undergraduate students in the last 1-2 years of their bachelor's degree program, where they will write a short policy brief to be published by the Roosevelt Institute. Emerging Fellows are paid and will be deeply supported in their research and policy writing, with opportunities for mentorship and exploration of graduate school pathways.



The Roosevelt Network - a student leadership incubator within the Roosevelt Institute, develops and supports undergraduate college students —in particular, those who hold identities historically denied political power—to be the next generation of leaders in the progressive policy ecosystem.
