CHCI's fellowship programs open the doors of opportunity to aspiring Latino college graduates. There are two fellowship programs offered:
CHCI’s Public Policy Fellowship program opens doors for talented young Latinos who are pursuing a career in public policy. CHCI fellows spend nine months working in Washington, D.C., with significant exposure to leaders in congressional offices, federal agencies, national nonprofit advocacy organizations, government-related institutes, and more—growing both personally and professionally during the fellowship experience.
CHCI’s Graduate Fellowship program is designed for exceptional emerging Latino leaders who want to immerse themselves in a specific public policy area. This paid, nine-month fellowship will provide you with valuable work experience, access to powerful Latino changemakers, and a chance to showcase your public policy knowledge on Capitol Hill.
One of the distinguishing features of CHCI’s Graduate Fellowship Program is the Capitol Hill Briefings. As part of the program, graduate fellows research a public policy issue that relates to the Latino community in their specific area of study, write an analytical white paper, and present it during the CHCI Capitol Hill Briefing Series—public policy roundtable discussions comprised of members of Congress, congressional staffers, public policy experts, and national leaders held each year in April. Additionally, select white papers may be chosen for publication in The Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy.
