Apply for a State Policy Fellowship
Applications are now being accepted for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities 2014 State Policy Fellowship Program. The deadline to apply is February 10th.
Policy Fellows spend two years with a state policy organization. Potential placement sites are all over the country with partners in the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative (SFAI), including the Washington State Budget & Policy Center. We were fortunate to have Mike Mitchell as
a Fellow from 2011- 2013.
State Policy Fellows tackle domestic policy challenges in areas like health care, taxes, anti-poverty policy, education and criminal justice. Fellows analyze the impact of state budget and tax policy choices on low-income residents and promote positive reforms.
The State Policy Fellowship was created to expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in state policy debates. The program identifies highly-qualified candidates who have graduate degrees in public policy, law, social work, economics, or similar fields and connects them to public policy organizations.
In addition to placement in state policy organizations, Fellows will also become part of a national network coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and travel to Washington, D.C., for training and career development. The program also identifies mentors and provides on-going training and opportunities for professional growth.
