“My time with Monument gave me fantastic insight on the ever-evolving relationship between government and the private sector. Fellows have the chance to contribute to projects in their fields of interest, all while collaborating with and learning from supportive colleagues from so many accomplished backgrounds. It’s a fast-paced environment that taught me how government affairs can progress forward in innovative and exciting ways, and Monument is leading the pack.”
“My Monument Advocacy fellowship kick-started my career. Not only did their team teach me the technical aspects of lobbying, politics, and business – they made it fun along the way! I would recommend spending a summer or semester at Monument to anyone.”
“Being a fellow at Monument is an incredibly rewarding experience! Not only was able to get a lot of hands-on experience through exciting, challenging projects, but I felt like I made meaningful contributions through my work. Monument is full of intelligent, policy-savvy people who are invested in their work and care a lot about the fellows.”
This is a paid fellowship, and will be virtual or in person in Washington DC following COVID-19 protocol.
