Apply for the ENACT Fellowship

The ENACT Faculty Fellowship application can be accessed below on this page. Contact enact@brandeis.edu with any questions. Applications accepted and considered on a rolling basis

Brandeis University is now accepting and reviewing 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.

We will be accepting applicants only from the following states, not currently represented in the ENACT network:

Alaska Montana New Mexico
North Dakota West Virginia Wyoming

This cohort of fellows will join a thriving network of 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, originally scheduled for May 31 to June 4, 2020, now tentatively rescheduled for June 6 2021 to June 10 2021, to be held in-person or virtually, depending on conditions. All expenses for participation in the workshop, including tuition, are paid by the ENACT Fellowship.

New ENACT Faculty Fellows must teach their ENACT course at least twice within four years of the ENACT Institute, with the first iteration being within the two years following the workshop.

ENACT Fellows and their students will have full access to the online ENACT network.

Additionally, every ENACT Fellow is eligible to apply for grant funds (up to $1,000) to support their course development and course work, and Fellows are  able to access research funds to study the effects of ENACT courses.

Eligibility Guidelines:
  • Applicant is a full-time faculty member teaching undergraduates.
  • Students will be able to engage directly with state legislators and the state legislature.
  • 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, tentatively scheduled from June 6 to June 10, 2021, to be held in-person or virtually, depending on conditions.

Deadline to apply: Applications accepted and considered on a rolling basis.

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