Fellows gain practical policymaking experience and graduate credit as they work from January to August as Congressional legislative aides in Washington, D.C. WREI Fellows receive a stipend of about $1,300 per month for eight months of the academic year. An additional sum of $500 is provided for the purchase of health insurance. WREI also reimburses Fellows up to a maximum of $1,500 for the cost of tuition at their home institutions (books and non-tuition charges are not covered). Only women who are currently enrolled in a masters, doctoral, or professional degree program at an accredited institution in the United States or who have completed such a program within the past 18 months are eligible. WREI strongly suggests that applicants have completed at least nine hours of graduate coursework before applying, and have a demonstrated interest in research or political activity relevant to women's social and political status. Prospective candidates are selected on the basis of academic competence as well as a demonstrated interest in the public policy process. The application deadline for this scholarship is in mid-May.
