ACE Summer 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 public policy and technology to research and publish with our Technology Policy Research Team. ACE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank.
Summer Fellows join 2 teams: research and communications.
- In the research teams, Fellows collaborate to produce nonpartisan, accessible research briefs for publication. The Technology Policy Research Team is led by a senior ACE Teammate who will work one-on-one with Summer Fellows to provide feedback on and develop their research projects. Teams meet once every two weeks and Summer Fellows have individual check-ins once per week.
- In the communications teams, students work to expand ACE’s audience and share new research with ACE’s readers. Students gain experience with valuable skills like social media, graphic design, and communications writing. The communications teams are led by ACE’s Director of Communications, and teams meet once every two weeks.
When applying for this position through the Summer Fellows page on the ACE website, students should indicate their interest in technology as well 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.
