Who Should Apply?

The course is an upper-level Political Science class open to Macalester juniors and sophomores in good academic standing (first preference will be given to juniors). Students need not be Political Science majors to apply.

  • All applicants are required to work full-time with their organizational partners from Monday, May 18 to Friday, July 24, 2014 and be available to meet with the other fellows during the same time frame. If you cannot fulfill this time commitment, you should not apply. All paid, unpaid, or voluntary summer work must be discussed with Professor Lavery and clearly indicated on the application.
  • The Chuck Green Fellows will be expected to actively participate in all class sessions in the spring term, work collaboratively with one another as well as the client partners throughout the fellowship, and be available to serve as peer advisers for the class of fellows to follow in their footsteps the next Spring.
  • We are particularly interested in applicants who can demonstrate that they work well with others, are courageous, creative, gutsy, conscientious, inventive, hard working, and have excellent written and oral communication skills.
