Public Policy Fellowship Program

Each year the Foundation awards professionals and family members a stipend to work in Washington for a full year, where they actively participate in public policy development through work on the staff of a congressional committee, or a federal agency. Former Public Policy Fellows describe the Fellowship as a major turning point in their lives. The coming year offers exciting opportunities to be involved in policy and legislative development in key areas such as special education, health and mental health care for persons with intellectual disability, child care, housing, justice, child welfare and other areas related to improving the quality of life for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
