State Policy Programs

Policy decisions focusing on children and families take place at the state level as well as at the federal level. To explore the possibility of extending SRCD’s¬†longstanding post-doctoral fellowship program focusing on federal child and family policy, SRCD¬†and the University-Based Child and Family Policy Consortium are excited to be piloting two new state policy programs in the 2017-2018 academic year.

To learn more about the 2017-2018 pilot class of State Policy Fellows and the work that they are doing in Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington state, click here.

Letters of intent are currently being accepted for the 2018-2019 fellowship year. Letters of intent must be submitted by December 22, 2017. More information about the state policy programs, including detailed instructions on how to submit a letter of intent, is available here.
