Employer: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Located in: Massachusetts
Degree Required: Masters
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.
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.
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 2019. 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.
State Policy Fellows will:
Develop expertise in issues such as state budget and tax policies, health care, housing, education finance, family economic security, economic development, and criminal justice.
Produce reports and other materials for use by policymakers, journalists, advocacy groups, and civic organizations.
Track and analyze legislative proposals and state budgets.
Advance effective policy recommendations.
Engage with media, policymakers and their staffs, and a broad array of state and community organizations.
Collaborate with community-based advocates to engage the public on the impacts of public policies on their communities.
