Fellows

CEEP Fellows Program

CEEP Fellows are students who help carry out our approaches on the ground, working with the nonpartisan engagement teams on their campus. Reaching out to their peers, they help register their fellow students to vote, navigate them through daunting voting rules, distribute our nonpartisan candidate guides and other educational materials, and organize and carry out Get Out The Vote events. Assisted by volunteer teams that they recruit from their friends and contacts, they bring their own interests and passions to the challenges of nonpartisan electoral engagement, working with allies throughout the campus.

Fellows can be paid or unpaid. We still have unpaid spots available for the 2018 Midterm Election season if your campus would like to sponsor a fellow.
