The South Carolina Democratic Party James E. Clyburn Political Fellowship (Clyburn Fellowship) offers leadership, policy, and campaign training to a select group of young professionals from each county in South Carolina. The Clyburn Fellowship was created to develop and train the next generation of Democratic leaders.

There are 5 sessions throughout the course of the year. Sessions are generally scheduled one weekend every other month and typically begin at 8:00 a .m. on Saturday and conclude by 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. Full participation is required. Applicants should be available to attend all sessions to be considered for the Fellowship.

NOTE: Start times and end times of sessions are subject to change, please allow for flexibility.
