The Institute of Politics at Florida State University (IOP@FSU) is currently accepting applications to be an IOP@FSU Undergraduate Fellow during the 2022-2023 academic year. Our Undergraduate Fellows Program provides a unique opportunity for FSU undergraduates to explore and pursue their interests related to politics, civic engagement, and public service. This program provides unique opportunities exclusively to our Fellows, including interaction with local, state and national elected officials, political professionals, and political science scholars.

2022-2023 Institute of Politics Fellows cohort would:

  • Meet and interact with invited speakers and guests
  • Have the opportunity for personal interactions with FSU alumni working in politics and public service
  • Invitation to participate in public lectures and events sponsored by the IOP
  • Receive exclusive opportunities to interact with legislators and lawmakers through the IOP’s Why We Serve Initiative

While we encourage our Undergraduate Fellows to participate in all aspects of our organization, attendance at sponsored events is not mandatory. The purpose of our Fellows Program is to foster an intellectual environment for undergraduate students to seek a better understanding of politics, civic engagement, and public service.

Fellows who satisfactorily complete the program are able to continue in the program in future years with added mentoring opportunities and opportunities for interaction with local, state and national elected officials, political professionals, and political science scholars at our events.
