What is it?

The Vote100 Summer Fellowship Program is a ten week internship sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life, Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, USG, and the American Whig-Cliosophic Society. Selected Fellows will work collaboratively with one another and the Deputy Dean of Undergraduate Students and other ODUS administrators to implement strategies that will increase campus voter registration and participation, as well as foster a spirit of civic engagement amongst Princetonians. All Vote100 Fellows will work remotely to assess current data on student voting patterns and come up with creative strategies that will cultivate a culture of voting enthusiasm on Princeton’s campus. Our goal is for Vote100 Fellows to create a comprehensive plan to utilize social and organizational networks to reach every undergraduate on campus, and enlist the help of student volunteers in completing this.

The complete job description can be found by visiting odus.princeton.edu/vote100fellow.

Is there a stipend?

All Vote100 Summer Fellows will be paid a stipend of $5,000 for their work this summer.

How do I apply?
