The Fellowship on Women & Public Policy is a premiere, intensive leadership development, skill building and educational program designed to encourage highly qualified graduate and post graduate women to pursue careers in public policy. More than 300 women have now completed the program and form an extensive alumni network that stretches across New York State, the United States and around the globe. One of two programs which comprise the Women's Leadership Academy (WLA) at the Center for Women in Government & Civil Society (CWGCS), the mission of the Fellowship on Women and Public Policy is to fortify and fill the pipelines of women's leadership so that public policy is informed by the unique experiences of women.

Fellows are provided with opportunities to gain specific skills and develop an extensive network of people working in their subject area as well as related professional arenas. The program runs annually from mid-January through the end of June. Participants are selected on a competitive basis based on academic achievement and work/life experience.

A highly intensive program, Fellows are required to work thirty hours each week at their placement office, Monday -Thursday. In addition, the program includes: 3 graduate courses (Tuesday and Thursday evening and one independent research) and professional development every Friday throughout the course of the Fellowship.
Fellows receive a $10,000 stipend, tuition waivers and receive nine graduate credits from the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, University at Albany, SUNY.
