KIPP Federal Policy Fellowship

In 2015, KIPP set out to change this dynamic by launching the KIPP Federal Policy Fellowship (also known as the KIPPtern program). Through the KIPPtern program, we leverage our relationships with Congressional offices on both sides of the aisle to help our alumni secure internships. Once in DC, we provide alumni with a stipend as well as support for transportation, meals, lodging, and even business attire.
