There are plenty of think tanks in Washington that define the left. And plenty that define the right. If you are an ideologically rebellious, fresh-thinking policy wonk willing to listen and learn, we'd like you to join us.

The Nancy Hale Fellowship Program offers those just completing their graduate school education and those beginning a career in public policy an opportunity to spend one year with Third Way. During their time here they will have a chance to: be in the room when we meet with top Washington policy players; co-author papers and work with our policy teams to produce new ideas, research, and insights; learn a methodology that is intellectually rigorous; and leverage our wide-ranging DC network into future career opportunities.

The Fellows Program is a full-time, 12-month program that comes with a $60,000 annual stipend and two weeks paid vacation, plus healthcare and benefits.

We understand what it means to bring different voices together to work towards a common goal. Third Way celebrates, supports, and promotes diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging and encourages all qualified applicants to apply to join our team. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, lawful alien status, age, marital status, parental status, or protected veteran status and will not discriminate against anyone on the basis of a disability. All employment selections are determined on the basis of qualifications and program needs.
