As you know by now, the University recently launched the E2020 Initiative…E2020 represents a unique opportunity for you to secure funding support and earn course credit while engaging in voter registration efforts, issue advocacy, and or political campaigns at the local, state or national level.
We encourage you to engage in the E2020 Initiative in a variety of ways.
- Get funded! E2020 can provide support for transportation and/or living expenses for your civic engagement experience in voter registration, issues advocacy or campaign work. Please note, all E2020 grantees will be required to enroll in CSPL494 through pre-registration for the semester of the break (Fall and Spring) or following the break (Winter and Summer). This quarter credit course will include an orientation, structured reflection, and a final paper.
- Applications for Spring Break support are due Friday February 7, 2020.
- Students can expect to hear back from the team by Friday February 21, 2020.
- Application deadlines for the Summer and Fall Breaks TBA.
