• ADP Civic Fellows 2022-2023

    ADP Civic Fellows explore assessment, research, and programmatic efforts that enact and support ADP’s mission and national work during a one or two-year renewable terms. ADP invites applicants for this opportunity designed to give professionals/scholars in our network a national platform to develop their research and programmatic ideas that correlate with ongoing or work to develop new ADP initiatives on a national scale.

    ADP Civic Fellows receive support from the ADP national office in the form of programmatic opportunities (e.g., webinars, conference presentations), publication opportunities (e.g., blog posts, monographs, reports and journal articles), and leadership opportunities (e.g., serving on steering committee and/or appropriate initiative and/or network teams). ADP Civic Fellows will be part of a cohort experience and will work closely with our director and steering committee to design and advance ADP national initiatives.

    If you are interested in being a Civic Fellow, please fill out this application (attaching necessary materials) and contact Cathy Copeland, ADP Director, to alert her to your submission.


    Each Fellow is expected to:

    • Provide the following information to the ADP Director:

      • A one-page proposal delineating the focus of your Civic Fellowship, including where ADP can assist you and your intended timeline and outcomes;
      • Specify a one-or two-year appointment (both types are renewable);
      • An overview report and an updated proposal at the halfway mark of your term, delineating your progress;
      • A final report at the conclusion of your term, which can be leveraged to re-start the Civic Fellowship;
      • Updates to the Steering Committee and the larger ADP community about your project as needed.

    • Participate in quarterly calls with the ADP Director and AVP (some calls may be with the full group of Civic Fellows, others may be separate).

    • Participate in the ADP Steering Committee as an ex officio member during your term.

    If you are interested in joining as a team to be in the Civic Fellow program, the only modification would be that you ask one member of your team to be the Steering Committee ex officio member. All reports that you provide would be as a team and quarterly calls would ideally include the full team.
