Be a Changemaker and Support KIPP’s 2019 Capitol Hill Fellowship

In today’s society, opportunity is not granted on merit alone. In addition to graduating from high school, working hard in college, and preparing for careers, prestigious—and sometimes unpaid—internships are also essential to build resumes.

But if a student lacks access to professional networks, as many first-generation college students do, they miss out on valuable connections. And if students need to earn money for school or to help family, moving to another city to take a low-paid, career-launching internship becomes a luxury they simply cannot afford.

The result impacts all of us: Too few students who look like and share the experiences of KIPPsters find their way into positions of influence and power where their voices are needed the most.

The KIPP Capitol Hill Fellowship, which provides college students access to Capitol Hill internships, room, board, transportation, and a modest stipend, is working to change this. This summer, eight promising students with policy aspirations will intern on the Hill.
