Fellowship For Women and Public Policy

The Congressional Fellowships on Women and Public Policy are extended each year to a select number of students pursuing a graduate degree or those who have recently completed a master’s, doctorate, or professional degree with a proven commitment to equity for women. Fellows gain practical policymaking experience and graduate credit as they work from January through July in congressional offices. Fellows receive stipends toward living expenses and meet weekly for issue seminars directed by the Women’s Congressional Policy Institute staff. The Fellowships are designed to train potential leaders in public policy formation to examine issues from the perspective, experiences, and needs of women.
