Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship

Application Deadline: Rolling Basis

The Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship prepares current students or recent graduates for a lifetime of social justice advocacy. Working closely with the AIDS United Policy Department, Zamora Fellows gain a professional understanding of HIV, advocacy, and public policy and practical advocacy experience in a supported environment.

Fellows are based in Washington, DC, and they dedicate their time learning about and engaging with the legislative process under the guidance of the AIDS United Policy Department. Fellows attend meetings on and off Capitol Hill, collaborate closely with colleagues representing organizations located across the country, and receive one-on-one mentorship from an experienced and passionate staff.

We offer three fellowships a year: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Start time and duration of the fellowship is based on the needs of AIDS United and the schedule of the candidate. Fellows receive a stipend of $2600 per month.


Fellows have a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Some have no previous HIV/AIDS experience, while others have worked or volunteered in the field. We look for people who are passionate about HIV/AIDS, enthusiastic, and dedicated to our mission of ending the AIDS epidemic in the US.

To be considered for the Zamora Fellowship, you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen or have secured the necessary visa prior to application
  • A graduate, undergraduate, or recent graduate
  • Available a minimum of 40 hours per week for 12-18 weeks
