I’m very excited to announce that the State Policy Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in coordination with the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative (SFAI), is currently seeking highly-qualified candidates to serve two years as entry-level analysts. Fellows will work in a state policy organization belonging to the SFAI network, such as the Minnesota Budget Project, or at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ state fiscal division in Washington D.C.
Fellows will gain hands-on education and experience while working alongside experts in the field of state policy to analyze the impact of state budget and tax policy choices on low-income residents and promote positive reforms. The program offers a competitive salary with health benefits and features professional development opportunities.
To expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in state policy debates, the program seeks highly qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds who recently received a graduate degree in public policy, public affairs, economics, social work, public health, law, or a related field, and have an interest in state fiscal policies affecting low- and moderate-income households.
Completed applications must be submitted online by January 15, 2010.
