In the summer of 2021, The CLYLP Comcast Fellowship celebrates its 12th year of providing CLYLP undergrad alumni an opportunity to learn more about California state government and the dynamics of public policy!
CLYLP Fellows will have the opportunity to engage key leaders in various sectors of California's life and culture. Virtual site visits and informal gatherings will be provided through the month-long program designed to build community and expand the fellows' leadership and support network.
WHAT THE VIRTUAL FELLOWSHIP OFFERS
Fellows will each receive a scholarship of $3,000 for the four-week period; these funds will be provided in four (4) installments as part of successful completion of components of the program.
Each fellow will receive a Capitol mentor during the four (4) weeks to support their virtual internship.
HOUSING & TRANSPORTATION ARRANGEMENTS
The fellows will be expected to find their own housing for the four-week virtual internship. Fellows are encouraged to have access to high speed broadband internet and a computer to access the virtual programming. The CLYLP Comcast Fellowship Program will work with fellows who may face hardships with access to broadband or computers.
