Senator Sherrod Brown is running for re-election in 2018 and his campaign is seeking motivated and enthusiastic students to become fellows on his fundraising and field teams.
This fellowship will have two parts: one in Columbus during summer 2018, and one at the fellow’s college campus during the fall semester. In the summer, fellows will become fully trained members of the finance team and will receive a thorough college campus organizing training. Fellows will also meet with staff and supporters across the state of Ohio. When fellows return to school in the fall, they will continue their work for the finance team and help organize for Senator Brown on their college campus. This two-part fellowship program will give students an excellent opportunity to be a part of one of the most competitive senate races in the country and will give them exclusive networking opportunities.
Fellows must be college students who are planning to be enrolled in the fall semester of 2018 on their college campus. They must be able to be in Columbus for eight consecutive weeks in the summer of 2018. During those eight weeks, students are expected to be in the Columbus office for 20 to 30 hours a week. If needed, the campaign will try and provide supporter housing for students to live in Columbus.
The fellowship is unpaid, however there will be many networking and professional development opportunities for students. Fellows will be connected with staff from the campaign, the Ohio Democratic Party, and prominent political leaders in Ohio. They will also receive extensive campaign finance and field organizing trainings, which are valuable skills in both politics and a wide range of different career paths. This program is unique in the opportunities it offers participants for professional and leadership development.
