Appalachian Progress Fellowship 

The Appalachian Progress Fellowship is a two-month summer program for community outreach for government services. Fellows work to get out the word about government benefits in the areas of affordable housing, early-childhood education, broadband, energy efficiency, and anti-poverty programming. The fellowship is designed to solve the "last mile" problem to ensure that the people of District 116 get access to government benefits and policies that were designed to help them. 

We are hiring fellows for our 2023 cohort. Fellows will work directly with Representative Rudow and the Fellowship Manager, Lauren Kriel. Fellows will be based in Asheville and will provide service to the constituents of District 116. The program will run from early June to the end of July 2023,  and fellows are expected to work 20 hours per week, including some weekend and evening work. Fellows will be paid $15/hour and can submit for reimbursement to cover work-related expenses. More information on the fellowship is available here. If you're intersted in applying, then please send a resume and a cover letter to Rudowfornchouse{at}
