Making a difference for low-income families and communities

State Policy Fellows tackle domestic policy challenges in areas like health care, taxes, anti-poverty policy, education, and criminal justice. Working in independent, highly respected policy organizations located across the country, Fellows analyze the impact of state budget and tax policy choices on low-income residents and promote positive reforms.

Bringing diverse perspectives to state policy debates

To expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in state policy debates, the program identifies highly motivated candidates - with particular attention to candidates having experience with communities that are underrepresented in state policy debates - with a demonstrated interest in working on public policies that affect low-income and diverse communities and have implications for racial equity. A graduate degree in public policy, law, social work, economics, or a similar field is required.

Launching careers

State Policy Fellows spend two years with an influential state-based policy organization or with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities beginning in the Summer of 2017. Fellows research and write analyses on current policy issues; brief policymakers, journalists, and civic leaders; and engage with advocates and community groups.

The Fellowship is a project of the State Priorities Partnership, a national network coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, one of the nation's premier policy institutes. Fellows will travel to Washington, D.C. for training and career development, will work with mentors, and will have access to ongoing opportunities for professional growth.
