Posted: November 16, 2009
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative is now accepting applications for the State Policy Fellowship Program. For more information, please read on or visit: www.cbpp.org/fellowship.
The goal of the fellowship is to build a diverse generation of future leaders who will shape state policies that affect disadvantaged families and communities. Key details of the program
* Fellows will spend two years as entry-level analysts working with a state policy organization belonging to the nationwide SFAI network or with the Center's state fiscal division in Washington, DC.
* Fellows will research and write analyses on current policy issues; brief policymakers, journalists and others on these issues; and serve as a resource for advocates and community groups.
* Each fellow will participate in a career development program that includes a week-long seminar in Washington, DC and additional training and professional development opportunities, including national policy conferences. Additionally, fellows will be partnered with mentors who are leaders in their field.
The fellowship will begin in the latter part of August 2010.
Completed applications must be submitted by January 15, 2010, but applicants are encouraged to apply earlier. For complete program information, please visit www.cbpp.org/fellowship.
