SNAP PAC LogoPAID POLITICAL CAMPAIGN FELLOWSHIP FOR SUMMER 2018 — DUE March 5th, 2018

Students for a New American Politics (SNAP) PAC is a student-run political action committee composed of current Yale undergraduates which organizes fellowships for underrepresented students to work on progressive congressional campaigns. SNAP recruits and chooses outstanding people from across the country to work as Field Organizers on competitive races during the summer, and then gives them the necessary training and stipend to succeed in the field.


 

Some entry-level positions in politics can be low/non-paying or otherwise hard to access, making it near-impossible to afford the jobs which lead to more lucrative careers in political campaigning. This financial barrier prohibits a huge portion of students from participating in electoral politics.

Students for a New American Politics offers the fix: we provide fellowships for students to work on progressive congressional campaigns. SNAP recruits and chooses outstanding people from across the country to work as Field Organizers on competitive races during the summer, and then gives them the necessary training and stipend to succeed in the field.

Our two-pronged approach allows us to maximize our resources. Our endorsement helps progressives win seats in Congress today and vote for policy to move America in the right direction, and our fellows gain the necessary experience to go on and become the progressive leaders of tomorrow — fundamentally changing the face of American politics.SNAP Students training

The SNAP Fellowship

  • SNAP fellows are not interns. They serve as Field Organizers — primarily leading volunteers — and lead many of the grassroots activities and organizing on the campaign
  • Many SNAP fellows learn a lot of tangible political skills to apply to other campaigns and positions 
  • Often, SNAP fellows continue working with the campaign past our fellowship term and through the election in November. They prove themselves as outstanding contributors and will frequently receive promotions to other roles on the campaign
