Wellstone Fellowship for Social Justice

Families USA, a national, nonprofit, nonpartisan consumer health care advocacy organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans, is accepting applications for the Wellstone Fellowship for Social Justice.

The Wellstone Fellowship is designed to advance social justice through healthcare advocacy by focusing particularly on the unique challenges facing communities of color. Through this fellowship, established to honor the memory of the late Senator Paul D. Wellstone, Families USA hopes to expand the pool of talented social justice advocates from underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups.

Competitive candidates must demonstrate an interest in healthcare policy and racial/ethnic health disparities.

The fellowship provides a year-long, full-time, salaried position in Washington, D.C. The selected fellow will receive a compensatory package that includes an annual salary of $38,000 and excellent healthcare benefits.
