The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is seeking applicants for the State Policy Fellowship Program to work on budget and public policy issues affecting low- and moderate-income communities and communities of color.

Fellows are placed with influential state policy organizations across the country.
The Fellowship is a project of the State Priorities Partnership, a national network coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a non-profit research organization with a national reputation for rigorous analysis of fiscal policies and an ability to influence policy debates.
