Paid Fellowship opportunities for people with developmental disabilities!
What is a Fellowship?
A SARTAC Fellowship is a one year project designed by a self advocate. Each Fellow works with a Host organization to complete their project. The project might work on finding new ideas to help solve problems many people have. The Fellows work on their projects about 6 hours each week. SARTAC pays Fellows $5,000 to complete their projects. Six Fellows will be chosen this year. To see a list of current and former Fellows’ projects, visit http://selfadvocacyinfo.org/fellows.

What is SARTAC?
The national Self Advocacy Resource and Technical Assistance Center (SARTAC) was created to assist regional, state, and local self advocacy groups across the country. It is funded by the Administration for Community Living* (ACL). SARTAC serves as an online clearinghouse for information about the history of the self advocacy movement and best practices, and provides training, technical assistance, and Fellowship opportunities. The lead organization is Self Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE). Other partners in this effort include UMKC Institute for Human Development (MO-UCEDD), TASH, Southwest Institute for Families and Children, Autistic Self Advocacy Network, and Green Mountain Self-Advocates.
