State Policy Felowship Program
Approximate Deadline: January
State Policy Fellows tackle domestic policy challenges in areas like health care, taxes, anti-poverty policy, education and public safety. Working in independent, highly respected think tanks located in state capitals, Fellows analyze the impact of state budget and tax policy choices on low-income residents and promote positive reforms. Eligible candidates must have received a graduate degree in public policy, public affairs, economics, social work, public health, or a related field within the past year, or expect to receive a degree before the end of August 2010; must have a strong academic record; and must be eligible to work full-time in the United States for the two-year duration of the program. Candidates should have an interest in state fiscal policy and a commitment to improving the welfare of low- and moderate-income households. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience with, or demonstrate a strong interest in, working with diverse communities.
