Student opportunity: paid Champlain Fellow with the Campus Election Engagement Project. Deadline: July 15

The Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit that helps campuses coordinate democratic engagement activities and institutionalize student voting. CEEP supports over 500 campuses across 25 states and has recently expanded to Vermont. The cornerstone of CEEP’s programming is our robust fellowship program, which is composed of over 250+ students from all across the country driving election engagement activities on their campus.

We are recruiting students to apply for a CEEP fellowship position at Champlain College!  The fellowship will begin on August 17th and the contract ends on November 20th.  All fellowships will transpire even if campuses remain closed in the fall. The Fellow will collaborate with Christina Erickson in the Center for Service & Sustainability and a voter engagement task force made up of faculty, staff and students. 
Here is some additional info about the Campus Election Engagement Project fellowship:

  • CEEP fellows are responsible for coordinating 4-6 election engagement activities on your campus during the fall semester. Examples of activities include: voter registration drives, informational tabling about upcoming elections, social media campaign, organizing a debate party, GOTV efforts such as coordinating transportation to the polls.
  • CEEP fellows will also work on 1 legacy project, which further supports the institutionalization of student voting.  Examples include: incorporating student voting into orientation or course registration, standardizing important election information in all syllabi,  highlighting important election information on campus platforms/portals.
  • Join a team of 3 other fellows in Vermont, and a team of 20 fellows in New England. We host monthly check-in calls to share resources, troubleshoot challenges and plan engagement activities.
  • Be part of a national initiative with over 250 fellows nationwide.
  • Receive hands-on training and support, as well as a $1000 stipend.
