Running Start/Wal-­‐Mart Star Fellowship Program Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2012!
The Running Start/Wal-­‐Mart Star Fellowship is an intensive program that brings female college students, or recent college graduates, to Washington D.C. for a semester-­ long
program to intern for a female Member of Congress on Capitol Hill. Star Fellows also learn about running for elected office during Friday seminars.
Our Fellows hone their political skills and learn about the legislative process first hand. Fellows emerge with a deeper understanding of the need for more women to run for office and confidence in their own abilities to lead.
Friday Seminar Topics:
• Campaigning 101
• Candidate and Advocate Fundraising
• Women’s Political Leadership and Barriers to Getting Elected
• Women’s Political Participation Around the World
The Fellowship includes free housing in Washington, DC  & $2,000 stipend for the semester.
