Fellowship Opportunity: The National Fellowship Program for Asian American Organizing

“The National Fellowship Program for Asian American Organizing” develops the leadership of a new generation of activists and organizers who are deeply invested in building the power of and improving the lives of working-class Asian immigrant communities.

During ten weeks of intensive training, ground work and reflection, Fellows will learn about and support struggles at their host sites, work to connect the larger API Movement across the country and build lasting relationships with peers, mentors and community members.

Host Sites:
Boston:  Chinese Progressive Association
Long Beach:  Khmer Girls in Action
Los Angeles:  Chinatown Community for Equitable Development
New York:  CAAAV – Organizing Asian Communities
San Francisco:  Filipino Community Center and Chinese Progressive Association

This is an intensive full-time, volunteer program for the summer.  Applicants are also encouraged to seek additional and alternative funding sources (include campus work-study programs, scholarships and stipends).  All cost (including travel to host site cities and housing) will the responsibility of each Fellow.  A limited number of scholarships ranging from $500 – $2000 are available.”
