Applications now being accepted for the 2023 Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation public policy fellowship. JPKF’s Public Policy Fellowship prepares emerging leaders to create change for the IDD community at the federal and state level. Past Fellows have worked alongside Senators and Members of Congress on key IDD policy including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the Developmental Disabilities Services and Bill of Rights Act. Former Fellows hold senior leadership roles in the nonprofit and private sectors and in the federal government, including in the White House, the U.S. Senate, the Department of Education, and the Department of Labor.
The Fellowship is a one-year, full-time, intensive immersion experience in federal public policy in Washington, D.C. The program includes a stipend and modest relocation expenses. Fellows must be prepared to live in the Washington, D.C. area and devote themselves full-time to the Fellowship.
