Applications Open For Class of 2013
WREI Congressional Fellowships
on Women and Public Policy
Applications are now open for 2013 WREI Congressional Fellowships on Women and Public Policy.
The program is open to applicants who are currently enrolled in, or have recently completed, a graduate program leading to a degree. WREI expects to award at least five Fellowships for 2013.
An intensive two-week orientation program for all Fellows begins in early January 2013 in Washington, DC. Fellows will generally be placed in their Hill offices by late January 2013; they will work through August 2013.
WREI strongly recommends that applicants have completed at least nine hours of graduate coursework before applying, and have a demonstrated interest in research or political activity relevant to women’s social and political status. Competition often includes lawyers, doctors, MBAs, and Ph.D candidates with extensive professional and volunteer experience. To examine the credentials and Fellowship work of previous WREI Fellows, go to here.
Fellows are selected on the basis of academic competence as well as demonstrated interest in the public policy process. They are expected to be articulate and adaptable, and to have strong writing skills. Applicants with a variety of traditional and non-traditional academic backgrounds will be considered.
WREI seeks diversity in its fellowship program and welcomes qualified applicants of any age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, experience, and academic field.
Applications must be received at WREI no later than June 15, 2012 by regular or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
