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 $50,000 annual stipend and two weeks paid vacation, plus healthcare and benefits. 

Applications for the 2019-2020 Hale Fellows Program are open.

Third Way is an equal opportunity employer – women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
