Apply for the ENACT Labor Network Faculty Fellowship

Applications are no longer being accepted. ENACT: The Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation network announces the pilot year of an exciting new initiative called the ENACT Labor Network (ELN). See the complete list of 29 schools and the ENACT Faculty Fellows at each school here.

Eligibility Guidelines:
  • Applicant is a full-time faculty member at a school with an ENACT Faculty Fellow.
  • Applicant is able to attend one or two virtual meetings during the planning phase, and four online video call meetings of approximately one hour each during the 2019-20 academic year, to be scheduled with input from the Faculty Fellows
  • Applicants may work with undergraduates and/or graduate students

About the ENACT Labor Network:

  • The 2019-20 academic year will be a pilot year for ELN. We will accept up to five ENACT campuses into the ELN pilot. Each participating campus will receive $3000, which can be used for faculty stipends, student stipends, and/or other expenses at the discretion of each participating campus.
  • The goal of the ELN is to create a sustained network of students and faculty at ENACT schools who are working on a year-round basis on issues related to workers and labor. Those issues include such matters as family leave, unionization, worker safety, and/or others. The ELN will operate on a year-round basis, regardless of when the legislature is in session.
  • The students working with ELN Faculty Fellows can engage with this program as part of a course, an independent study, or as paid or volunteer extra-curricular work. They do not need to be enrolled in or have taken an ENACT course.
  • On each ELN campus, students will work on legislation related to labor issues in their state, under the guidance of the ELN Faculty Fellow. Students may work in conjunction with one or more state legislators, with advocacy groups, with state-level research organizations, or some combination. In every case, the goal is to create a steady locus of engagement for student involvement in state-level labor issues.

Deadline to apply: February 25, 2019.

Please note that the application must be completed and submitted at one sitting; the application cannot be saved in progress and returned to later.
