Public service opportunity: IGNITE Fellowship

IGNITE is building a national movement to dramatically increase the pool of women who are prepared and eager to become the next generation of political leaders. As a nonpartisan 501c3, IGNITE builds political ambition in high school and college-aged young women in their own communities. Our vision is to build a movement of young women who are civically engaged, respond to issues in their own communities, and who ultimately pursue elective office.

IGNITE is offering a yearlong Fellowship Program for young women who are civically engaged, politically ambitious, and aim to position themselves for a life of political leadership. During the 2018-2019 academic year, IGNITE will select Fellows in the following communities: Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Boston, MA; Central Valley, CA; Denver, CO; Madison, WI; Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN; Montgomery, AL; New York, NY; San Antonio, TX; Seattle, WA; Southern CA.

​IGNITE fellows will receive a $10,000 stipend for the program.​
