Economic Mobility Fellowship Program

The Economic Mobility Fellowship Program is a federal government-university partnership that seeks to broaden the pipeline of research staff working on issues of poverty and inequality in the United States. Fellows work in residence at the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Secretary, where they actively participate in research and policy analysis activities.

As part of the program, fellows are paired with a mentor for the duration of their fellowship, participate in quarterly trainings, and receive funding to attend a research conference each year.

To learn more about ASPE and the work they do, check out this video.

Calls for applications are generally released each winter for fellowships that begin the following summer.
