IGNITE recruits a new cohort of diverse and passionate women in communities across the United States and provides them with resources, training, and networks to launch political careers. Each Fellow launches a regional college council for 20-30 politically ambitious young women from a group of local college campuses. Each College Council meets for bi-monthly weekend retreats. Fellows represent the political spectrum and are deeply motivated, take initiative, have organizing experience on college campuses, and have a track record of building new initiatives. IGNITE Fellows are compensated with a $10,000 stipend. Application deadlines vary by site.
