New fellowship program seeks UCF students

Students for a New American Politics PAC is pleased to announce the Fall 2012 Organizing Fellowship Program. The SNAP Fellowship is a paid grassroots organizing fellowship for students and youth that’s fast-paced, high-impact, and focused on social justice values. This isn’t your average summer internship – it’s your opportunity to create real, lasting change.

As a SNAP Organizing Fellow, you’ll work for candidates and causes that support labor and economic justice, and the environmental, LGBTQ, and immigrants’ rights movements. You’ll talk to voters and recruit volunteers to elect Democratic candidates who are ready to put Congress to work building a fairer society.

SNAP seeks to hire several Organizing Fellows for our fall program. All Organizing Fellows will be placed on liberal/progressive Congressional campaigns or ballot initiatives in competitive districts across the country. Transportation to the districts will be provided. Fellows will work from the time they are accepted until the week of Tuesday, November 6. We look for applicants with some previous community or political organizing experience.

Equal Access Statement: SNAP believes that our country’s leadership should reflect its diversity. We therefore pay all Organizing Fellows a stipend of up to $5,000, based on financial need. The average stipend in summer 2012 was $1,582 plus free housing and transportation for 10 weeks.

How to Apply: For priority consideration, apply as soon as possible by Monday, September 10 for work until Nov. 6. Applicants will be interviewed on a rolling basis. Download the application at Then, copy and paste Part 1 within an email and attach Parts 2 and 3 as one document. Applications should be emailed to with the subject line “2012 Fellowship.”

All applications will be acknowledged. Finalist applicants will receive phone interviews and will then provide information to determine financial need.
