To expand the diversity of voices that speak with authority in state policy debates, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) has developed a State Policy Fellowship that places fellows in two-year, paid positions in influential state-based policy organizations, including the Minnesota Budget Project.
The fellowship program seeks 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 communities and have implications for racial equity. A graduate degree in public policy, law, social work, economics, or a similar field is required.
The Minnesota Budget Project policy fellow will have an opportunity to work on advancing policies to make economic opportunity and prosperity available to all Minnesotans, regardless of who they are or where they live. The fellow will develop expertise in state budget issues and tax policies, collaborate with community-based advocates, and produce analyses that advance and build support for policy recommendations.
Fellows will also participate in a career development program, including an orientation and two policy conferences in Washington, D.C.
Fellows will earn $50,000 per year, plus the Minnesota Budget Project offers great benefits.
Applications, submitted through the CBPP, are due February 10. More information and the link to apply can be found here.
