The Joan Amery van Vleck Fellowship is a one year award designed to be career focused and to equip the fellow with research and advocacy skills through a practicum experience at the Policy Center. Fellows increase their understanding of how research, advocacy, training and girl-centered, trauma informed intervention services are related to improving system responses to girls and young women. The research fellow will play a key role within the Policy Center’s Research Team by engaging in assigned research activities and by providing support on various local projects.
There are no current positions with the research team at this time.
