Eligibility and Application


Students who currently are enrolled in a graduate program at an accredited institution in the United States, or who have completed such a program within the past two years, are eligible for the fellowship. Only U.S. citizens will be considered. WCPI strongly recommends that applicants complete at least nine hours of graduate coursework before applying and display serious interest in research and policymaking relevant to issues affecting women and their families.
