SPSSI Public Policy Fellowships

The James Marshall Public Policy Postdoctoral Fellowship  Last application deadline: March 22, 2021
The goals of SPSSI’s James Marshall Fellowship in Public Policy are to train early career scientists to 1) contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge about social issues in the formation of public policy at the federal level; 2) educate the scientific community about how research can contribute to the development of public policy; and 3) establish a more effective liaison between social scientists and various policy-making mechanisms.  Read more about our most recent Fellow, Dr. Kevin R. Carriere, here.  

Dalmas A. Taylor Memorial Summer Minority Policy Fellowship  Last application deadline: March 15, 2021
The purpose of this fellowship is to honor the memory of Dalmas A. Taylor, who passed away during his term as President of SPSSI. Dr. Taylor had been involved for many years with SPSSI. In addition, he was instrumental in establishing the Minority Fellowship at the American Psychological Association and in increasing the APA’s attention to inclusion of people of color. This fellowship is administered in conjunction with APA and its Minority Fellowship Program. It provides an opportunity for a graduate student of color to work on public policy issues in Washington, DC. Read comments from some of our recent fellows here.
