Fellowship on Women and Public Policy
The fellowship program is an intensive leadership development program designed to promote equity and excellence in public service and encourage government to be more responsive to the needs of women, children, families, and communities in New York State. By offering policy-related placements in New York State agencies, the Legislature and statewide nonprofit advocacy organizations, the fellowship encourages graduate students to pursue careers in public policy while increasing the capacity of New York State Government. The program is administered by the Center for Women in Government & Civil Society, a part of the Nelson A. Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, University at Albany, State University of New York.
The fellowship offers a $9,000 stipend and tuition assistance for academic coursework. The program takes place in the spring semester during which fellows are full-time graduate students at Rockefeller College with policy-related field placements (in Albany) for thirty hours a week from January thru June. The first round of applications are due by July 16 (we will continue to accept and consider applications through the fall as placements become available).
Matriculated students in graduate programs at all accredited colleges and universities in New York State. Applicants must have completed 12 graduate credits before applying, with degree completion scheduled after the fellowship. Candidates must have a demonstrated interest in studies, research, employment or voluntary activities designed to improve the status of women and underrepresented populations.
