The Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellowship
DEADLINE: JANUARY 22, 2009

Each year, up to twenty-four participants are selected from around the country for this eleven-month program. They assemble in Washington, D.C. in September for a comprehensive ten-day orientation and training, where they explore the reality of hunger and poverty in the U.S. and the various approaches to social and systemic change.

Fellows are placed for five months with urban and rural community-based organizations involved in fighting hunger at the local level, such as grassroots organizing groups, food banks, local advocacy groups, economic development agencies, and faith-based organizations. Each host organization identifies specific goals and outcomes for the Fellows and provides the supervision and resources necessary to accomplish them.

In mid-February, the Fellows regroup in Washington, D.C. to process and evaluate their field experiences and participate in extensive policy training to learn about national anti-hunger and anti-poverty policy work.

BENEFITS: $14,500 annual living allowance, health insurance, travel expenses, housing during field placement, $3,500 end-of-service award, $3,500 housing stipend in D.C., relocation stipend, connection to an extensive community of Hunger Fellows and network of alumni, parrtners, and experts, experience with community and policy leaders, training/mentoring/leadership development, experience in project management.    http://www.hungercenter.org
