Ms. Foundation for Women Invites Applications for Year-Long Fellowship

The Ms. Foundation for Women has announced that it is accepting proposals for its second annual fellowship, which will support a talented leader pursuing change related to the Ms. Foundation’s advocacy and policy work.

Proposed approaches may include but are not limited to research and analysis, policy reports and white papers, technological innovation, state legislative strategy, and anti-discrimination initiatives. Examples of current Ms. Foundation policy initiatives include extension of states’ civil statutes of limitations for child sexual abuse lawsuits, research and analysis of the barriers to public benefits that women encounter, a report on immigrant women’s access to reproductive health care, and a legislative scorecard on women’s issues.

The fellow will be a full-time paid employee of the Ms. Foundation for Women and will receive a generous benefits package. Although the Ms. Foundation, which is located in Brooklyn, New York, prefers local applicants, it welcomes proposals based in other states. The fellowship runs from September 2013 to August 2014.

For complete program guidelines, the application form, and information on the 2012 fellow, visit the Ms. Foundation Web site.
