Congressional Fellowships on Women and Public Policy
Women’s Policy, Inc. has been the home for the Congressional Fellowships on Women and Public Policy since 2014 (formerly the WREI Fellowships). The fellowships are extended each year to a select number of students pursuing a graduate degree or those who have recently completed a master’s, doctorate, or professional degree with a proven commitment to equity for women. Fellows gain practical policymaking experience and graduate credit as they work from January to August in Congressional offices.
The Fellowships are designed to train potential leaders in public policy formation to examine issues from the perspective, experiences, and needs of women. Administered by WPI, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization located in Washington, DC, this program is unique—the only graduate level fellowship program on Capitol Hill directly by, for, and about women.
