Paid Fellowship Opportunity!

October 26, 2022

The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis and The League of Student Advocates invites applications for the paid 2022-2023 Policy Fellowship Program.  

This hands-on, paid fellowship program will support fellows advocating at the federal, state, and institutional policy level to increase college access and affordability. Fellows will be equipped with the resources, training, and context to advance a student-led agenda for higher education and student wellbeing in Missouri. In addition, fellows will be able to learn how historical, financial, and systemic issues have impacted college accessibility and then explore campaigns that seek to get closer to equity in higher education. The overall goal is to ensure students who are primarily left out of these types of discussions are not only included in them, but able to lead them.

Fellowship Details

The Fellowship will run from November 2022 to June 2023 with a minimum commitment of 5 to 10 hours per week, with up to 20 hours per week available. Fellows are paid between $20-25 per hour for training and time spent during the fellowship. The fellowship requires participants to gather in person on a biweekly basis for training purposes. Trainings will be held on Saturdays in-person in St. Louis, MO with additional meeting dates to be determined. The Policy Fellowship Program orientation will be held in-person at 10am-2pm Saturday, November 19, 2022, in St. Louis, Missouri.
