Applications Now Open for 6 PAID Fellowships for Self-Advocates!

Are you, or someone you know, a self-advocate with an innovative idea?

The Self-Advocacy Resource and Technical Assistance Center (SARTAC) is accepting applications for their 2019 PAID Fellowship for Self-Advocates. The State Council on Developmental Disabilities would like to be an organization/department to work on creative projects with a self-advocate with an innovative idea.

What is a Fellowship?
A fellowship is a one-year project. You design a project that:
• is about self-advocacy
• helps solve problems that many people have.
Fellows work on their projects about 6 hours each week. SARTAC pays Fellows $5,000 to complete their projects. Find an organization near you to work with you on your project. Your project must end with a report or products others can use. Six Fellows will be chosen this year. This is the 3rd year we have had Fellowships.

Deadline to apply: Thursday, December 20, 2018, 5 pm (Pacific time)
