Undergraduate Fellows

FactCheck.org launched a year-round, paid fellowship program for undergraduate students at the University of Pennsylvania in the summer of 2010. The fellows participate in a full-time summer training program to learn how to monitor political claims, conduct research using the best evidence and write fact-checking articles. During the academic year, they work part time to assist our staff. They conduct research, contribute to fact-checking articles, fact-check articles written by FactCheck.org and respond to questions from readers.

The program so far has benefited over three dozen undergraduate students since its inception in 2010, including these students during the 2019-2020 academic year.
