Villers Fellowships for Health Care Justice aim to inspire and develop future generations of health care justice leaders.  Fellows work full-time for one year in Families USA’s Health Policy Department in Washington, D.C., where they conduct primary and secondary research on a range of health care issues and health reform topics, contribute to the organization’s publications, and gain exposure to the work of a public policy advocacy nonprofit.

Each fellowship lasts for one year, from August through the following July.  Fellows receive an annual salary of approximately $38,000 as well as health care benefits.

Candidates must be authorized to work in the U.S. for a year.  Families USA prefers that applicants either have a college degree or plan to receive a college degree prior to taking up the fellowship.  Candidates from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply, provided they have strong analytical and writing skills.

Candidates should also demonstrate a commitment to social and health care justice advocacy following the fellowship year, and fellows must commit to mentoring at least one person over the course of their careers.
