The Campaign for College Opportunity’s Steve Weiner and David Wolf Founder Fellowship Program is offering two part-time, nine-month, paid Research Fellowships to prepare the next generation of higher education advocates. Fellows have the opportunity to learn what it means to advocate on behalf of California’s students to access, afford, and succeed in the state’s colleges and universities and how to harness the critical skills and tools necessary to compel change. Research Fellows will conduct research, analyze data, and prepare briefs that will inform public discourse and advance change in California higher education policy. This is a remote work opportunity scheduled to start on September 20, 2021. Interested parties should forward a letter of interest, resume, and a 2-3 page writing sample. When applying, please indicate “Research Fellowship” in the subject line by email to Read the full listing
