Advocacy Project Fellowship

Each year, The Advocacy Project recruits graduate students to volunteer with our partner organizations. This is the only fellowship program that matches the passion and skills of graduates with the needs of community-based advocates. We have deployed 294 Fellows from 66 university programs since recruiting began in 2003. This year (2018) we are deploying nine Fellows to Vietnam, Nepal, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Jordan.

Fellows provide technical support to their host organizations for periods of between 10 weeks and a year. We train Fellows to offer six core services which will help hosts to tell their story; develop innovative projects for social change; strengthen their organizations; and expand their international contacts. Each Fellow receives a $1,000 stipend and health insurance from AP. In return, we expect Fellows to develop a work plan and measure outputs carefully.
