Institute for Women's Policy Research Post-Bachelor's Research Fellowship

In honor of pioneering feminist economist Mariam K. Chamberlain (MKC), IWPR offers a fellowship in public policy to a promising scholar each year. The Mariam K. Chamberlain Fellow contributes to a variety of research projects to inform policies affecting women.

Applicants should have at least a bachelor's degree in a social science discipline (such as sociology, psychology, education, or public policy), statistics, economics, mathematics or women's studies. Graduate work is not required.

- Applicants should have strong quantitative and library research skills and knowledge of women's issues; familiarity with Microsoft Word and Excel is required.
- Knowledge of STATA, SPSS, SAS, or graphics software a plus.
- Qualitative and or survey research experience also a plus.
Compensation for the fellowship is $32,680 before taxes over the 9-month period, plus health insurance and a public transportation stipend. The position is full-time and generally spans the academic year (September–May), though starting and ending dates are somewhat flexible.
