Population Connection offers fellowships in Washington, D.C. for recent college graduates and graduate students with a special interest in population issues. Each fellow has a responsible role working with a specific department and becomes an essential part of that department’s staff.
As the nation’s largest grassroots population stabilization organization, Population Connection’s strength lies in its ability to build grassroots support for its legislative agenda. The Field Fellow will assist with this effort by coordinating events and speaking engagements; monitoring legislation and current events in targeted districts where campaigns are run; and recruiting and mobilizing volunteers for campaigns and other efforts.
