Brandeis University is now accepting applications from full-time faculty members at colleges and universities where students have relatively easy access to their state capital to join ENACT: The Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation as ENACT Faculty Fellows.

This cohort of fellows will join a thriving network that currently consists of 16 Faculty Fellows across the United States who are teaching new courses or enhancing existing courses that engage students in hands-on study and work related to state-level legislation. Fellows will advance this work together, learning from one another's pedagogy and sharing in each other's successes.

The newly-accepted ENACT Fellows will attend a five-day summer workshop hosted by Brandeis University from May 20-24, 2018. All expenses for participation in the workshop, including tuition, are paid by the ENACT Fellowship.

Additionally, every ENACT Fellow is eligible to apply for grant funds to support their course development and course work. ENACT Fellows and their students will also have full access to the online ENACT network.

  • Students have relatively easy access to the state capital.
  • Application is from a state or US territory not already represented by ENACT. (See list of states above.)
  • Applicant can attend the ENACT Institute at Brandeis University from May 20-24, 2018.
