ACE Student Fellows are an essential part of ACE’s mission to engage young voters through nonpartisan research, and empower them to make informed choices. We are seeking students with an interest in human rights & equality to research and publish with our Human Rights & Equality Research Team. ACE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank.
Student Fellows collaborate to produce nonpartisan, accessible research briefs for publication. Research teams are led by ACE Research Associates, graduate students with expertise in their field or highly-qualified undergraduate students. Research Associates work one-on-one with Student Fellows to develop and provide feedback on their research projects. Teams meet once every two weeks.
In addition to research, Student Fellows gain experience with a variety of communication and outreach roles. Every Student Fellow has a communications role on their research team, and expand ACE’s audience while developing skills in social media, newsletter writing, PR, or another area. Student Fellows also have monthly outreach goals on their campuses, to share the Political Priorities Worksheet, build relationships with clubs, or present their research.
- Time Commitment: 10-12 hours per week (8 hours on research projects, 1 hour on outreach projects, 1-3 hours on communication projects)
- Start and End Dates: September 6-December 10
- Application Deadline: Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis, so we encourage interested students to apply as early as possible. No interviews will be scheduled after August 15th.
When applying for this position through the Student Fellows page on the ACE website, students should indicate their interest in human rights & equality as well as one of the areas of communications. More details about what each communications area entails can be found in the FAQ section of the same page.
We are looking for enthusiastic students from all disciplines who share our belief that democracy works best when citizens are actively informed and engaged.
