What are you looking for in Fellows?

We consider anybody. But we envision that our 20 Fellows will be individuals who are progressive-leaning, passionate, entrepreneurial, and have demonstrated potential and success in their chosen fields, but do not currently work in politics professionally or full-time. They will come from diverse professions, issue areas, ideologies, and walks of life, ranging in age from early 20s to late 30s. Most importantly, they demonstrate commitment to NLC and to participating fully in the program. 

Nationally, 57% of Fellows are non-white, 53% are women, and 11% identify as LGBTQ.
