NOBEL-W Research, Coordinating and Communication Fellowship/Internship Program
The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative/Women (NOBEL-Women) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization primarily composed of current and former black women legislators as well as many appointed officials. Originally established in 1985 as a national organization to increase and promote the presence of black women in government, NOBEL/Women in recent years has expanded its vision to serve as a global voice to address a myriad of issues affecting the lives of all women. Throughout its history, NOBEL/Women have inspired women to take an active role in the making of public policy and have served as a catalyst to provide economic and social justice for all classes and races of people. NOBEL/Women has worked actively to achieve its goals to increase the representation of black women in public service and the private sector by providing educational forums to address major public policy issues particularly in the areas of health, telecommunications, education, economic development and financial policies.
NOBEL-W is currently looking for fellows and interns to support its work through communications and media outreach, coordination services and research. NOBEL-Women’s research and communications fellowship/internship program provides undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to learn about the work of women state legislators across the country and to support this work with traditional and new media tools. Interns are asked to work a minimum of 15 hours per week during the summer and/or fall semester. Fellows are asked to work a minimum of 25 hours per week during the summer and/or fall semester.
Fellows and Interns would work with NOBEL-Women to set a regular schedule between the operating hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday-Friday.
NOBEL-Women’s Research, Coordinating and Communication Fellowship/ Internship program is paid opportunity and cannot be used as academic credit. NOBEL-Women is an equal opportunity employer.
