Tisch Summer Fellows: 2020 Elections

Tisch College is committed to supporting Tufts University students in all aspects of civic engagement, including politics, both during the academic year and in the summer. On our 20th anniversary year, which coincides with the pivotal 2020 election cycle, we expanded this commitment by supporting students who wished to engage with political campaigns (of all types and political affiliations) during the summer of 2020.

2020 Tisch Campaign Fellowships

Tisch College supported 10 fellowships, of up to $4,000 each to current Tufts students to work on political campaigns, across the political spectrum, during the summer of 2020. Please note that, unlike our other Tisch Summer Fellowships, we are not coordinating placements for students within campaigns; we are offering funding for campaign internships that students secure independently.

Students worked for the summer on a campaign for a 2020 candidate, an issue advocacy campaign directly related to the 2020 election, or a voter registration campaign directly related to the 2020 election. Campaigns may be local, state, or national and of any political party. These funding awards were made on a competitive basis. Applications were due April 14.

To provide ongoing opportnities, we launched a Fall Campaign Fellowships program!
