Policy Fellowship Program

Summer 2017 application is now open. Deadline is March 24th.

Now accepting applications for Fall 2017. Deadline is July 31st. 

Each semester NHMC selects at least one student to participate in its Policy Fellowship Program. Fellows are guided through legal and policy research, analysis, writing and public speaking. They build skills while enhancing NHMC’s advocacy before the Federal Communications Commission and other agencies. Students have the opportunity to visit and network with executives at Facebook, Google, and Univision.

Past fellows hail from distinguished schools such as UCLA, UC Davis, Harvard, Berkeley, Georgetown, American and UNC. NHMC staff is dedicated to connecting them with future employers. Former NHMC fellows have gone on to judicial clerkships, the FCC, non-profit organizations, and law firms large and small.

NHMC pays fellows so that nobody is excluded due to financial constraints. Due to popular demand, NHMC is seeking sponsors for this program.  For a tax-deductible, $10,000 donation, you can sponsor a fellow for one semester. That donation will go towards paying fellows, NHMC staff time and travel expenses for fellows to bring their advocacy live to decision-makers in Washington, D.C.

Sponsorship benefits include:

  • You or your company’s name as the title sponsor of the fellowship.
  • Your name or logo listed on NHMC’s Policy Fellow web-page.
  • Company  profile article in NHMC’s e-newsletter.
  • An honorable mention in NHMC’s blog.
