The Oregon Center for Public Policy is a potential host for a 2016 State Policy Fellow. This fellowship is a great opportunity to begin a career in public policy.
Applications are being accepted now. The application deadline has been extended to February 8, 2016.
State Policy Fellows spend two years with an influential state policy organization or with one of two Washington, D.C.-based organizations, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) or the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Fellows research and write analyses on current policy issues; brief policymakers, journalists, and civic leaders; and engage with advocates and community groups.
One of the goals of the fellowship is to expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in state policy debates.
A graduate degree in public policy, law, social work, economics, or a similar field is required.
