The Ms. Foundation for Women Fellowship provides the opportunity for dynamic leaders to leverage our resources and support to develop promising strategies to shift policies and cultural conditions that enable inequality to thrive. Recognizing a particular urgency within marginalized communities, we fight for equal pay, reproductive justice, an end to violence and child sexual abuse, and countless other issues that impact women.
For the second consecutive year, we are pleased to announce the Ms. Foundation Fellowship. This one-year fellowship (Sept. 2013 to Aug. 2014), housed in the Ms. Foundation’s newly established Advocacy and Policy department, will fund a talented early to mid-career individual to pursue a project in support of the foundation’s ongoing work. If successful, the project may be eligible for continued funding.
We seek fellowship proposals that apply creative, relevant tactics to improve conditions for women regarding the following critical issues:
- Child sexual abuse
- Economic justice
- Reproductive justice
- Sexualization of girls
The Fellow selected will be a full-time, paid employee of the Ms. Foundation for Women and receive:
- Financial compensation up to $85,000 for one year (dependent upon project terms and experience)
- Health benefits
- The opportunity to apply for a continuation grant of up to $50,000
- Office space and equipment at the Ms. Foundation (for NYC-based applicants only)
- Professional development, networking, and mentoring opportunities
