Justice Fellows Policy Program

Thank you for your interest in The Education Trust’s Justice Policy Fellows program.

Our application period has closed.

The Education Trust has been an active participant in the federal advocacy effort to lift the ban on Pell Grants for students who are incarcerated, supporting the efforts of the Unlock Higher Ed Coalition and others. Our website, https://edtrust.org/lift_the_ban, houses advocacy materials, videos, and activities and events we have held in support of this effort. Central to our work is elevating the voices of directly impacted individuals as leaders and experts. Thus, we’re excited to build on our efforts by launching a new Justice Fellows Policy Program to gain first-hand knowledge and insight from those directly impacted by existing and proposed policies.
