Every year we host two prestigious year-long fellowships for up and coming leaders in these areas. The application period is now open, so please encourage your students to apply.

The Villers Fellowship for Health Care Justice was created to develop a network of young leaders who share a passion for health care justice. Each year, the Villers Fellow works in our health policy department and, through writing, research and outreach, assists our organization's efforts to improve access to health coverage for all Americans.

The Wellstone Fellowship for Social Justice advances social justice through health care advocacy work by focusing on the unique challenges facing many low-income and minority communities. Through this fellowship, Families USA hopes to expand the pool of talented social justice advocates from underrepresented economic, racial, and ethnic minority groups. The Wellstone Fellow’s primary responsibilities include performing research into health policy and developing content that promotes the reduction and elimination of disparities in health care.

The application deadline for the Villers Fellowship is January 29. 2016. The deadline for the Wellstone Fellowship is February 12, 2016.

Both fellows will start in August of 2016 and spend a year working for Families USA in Washington, DC. Selected fellows will receive a compensatory package that includes an annual salary of $38,000 and excellent health care benefits.
