The Running Start/Walmart Star Fellowship program brings 14 college women to Washington, DC each year to learn about politics first-hand. Fellows are placed in the offices of female Members of Congress on Capitol Hill where they hone their policy and political skills. Each Friday, the Fellows take part in a seminar conducted by Running Start, which rounds out their internship experience by giving them the skills and contacts they need to become political leaders. The seminars also give the Fellows a better understanding of what their boss had to do to win their seat in Congress. The Fellows emerge from their semester in DC with a deeper understanding of the need for more women to run for office and confidence in their own abilities to lead.
