Rutgers graduate students: Apply now for class of 2014!
Application deadline March 29.
The Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey offers an interdisciplinary fellowship program that connects Rutgers graduate students to the practice of politics through a required course and internship. The one-year fellowship aims to add a hands-on understanding of politics and government to the student’s academic course of study.
Recruitment for class of 2015 will begin in September 2014.
We invite students at the beginning of their junior year at Rutgers to apply to Eagleton Institute's Undergraduate Associates Program. The program offers an opportunity for a select group of students to study government and politics and share in the activities and resources of the Institute during their last three semesters at Rutgers.
