Rockefeller Institute of Government (RIG) Graduate Student Fellowship
RIG is the public policy research arm of the State University of New York. It has conducted policy analysis in a wide variety of areas, including state and local fiscal conditions, tax policies, fiscal capabilities and spending trends. In nationwide field research studies, RIG has examined whether and how states have implemented major initiatives — and the institutional strengths and weaknesses revealed by such efforts. It has studied reforms to improve states' executive leadership and to recruit and maintain a skilled state and local workforce. RIG has also examined state capacity to contract with private agencies for public functions while holding these agencies accountable, and has investigated the institutional capabilities demanded of states as they attempt to reform health care, integrate the delivery of human services, and recover from natural disasters.
Students interested in state and local government, public finance, policy implementation, and federalism are strongly encouraged to apply for a RIG Graduate Student Fellowship. Please visit http://www.rockinst.org/ for more general information on Rockefeller Institute.
