The Marijuana Policy Project is offering the following fellowship, grant and job opportunities coming up:

1) 2004 Summer Fellowships for Marijuana Policy Reform: MPP is offering $6,000 Summer Fellowship grants for qualified students and activists to engage in grassroots organizing for marijuana policy reform for three months this summer. Summer fellows will be asked to organize in their cities/regions a list of individuals who support reform, protests and other grassroots events, the distribution of literature, and the generation of favorable news coverage. Fellowships will begin on approximately May 15 and will end on approximately August 15, depending on each applicant's availability. The application deadline is May 1. Visit for further information.

2) Request for Proposals -- Grassroots Organizing in Targeted States and Congressional Districts: The MPP grants program is seeking proposals from organizations and individuals for comprehensive grassroots organizing for marijuana policy reform in targeted states and congressional districts. The areas of grassroots organizing that are eligible for such funding fall into four categories: (1) organizing to pass medical marijuana legislation in key states; (2) organizing in key states to pass legislation to regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol; (3) organizing in congressional districts to pressure targeted members of Congress to support the Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment to de-fund the federal government's war on medical marijuana; and (4) organizing in congressional districts to pressure targeted members of Congress to support legislation to allow states to determine their own marijuana policies. The application deadline is May 1. See for further information.

3) Job Opening -- Membership Coordinator: MPP is seeking a Membership Coordinator for its main office in Washington, DC. The Membership Coordinator must be meticulous and have an exacting attention to detail; even small degrees of sloppiness or forgetfulness will be deemed unacceptable. The Membership Coordinator should be highly organized, as the position requires serving as the point of contact in the MPP office for what will be 100 or more "e-mail petitioners" across the nation. Application deadline April 18, visit for further information.
