National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) 2022-2023 Fellowship 

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NHCV) is seeking a Research Fellow who will work with our Technical Assistance Center to explore topics related to aging veterans experiencing housing instability and homelessness. The Fellow will help us identify and understand gaps in the system of care for aging veterans and develop products to share the findings with our network.
 
We are accepting applications from current masters-level students in public health, public policy, social work, or a related field or very recent graduates. Potential candidates should have a strong interest in public health, housing, homelessness, veterans, and aging-related issues.
 
We are specifically interested in receiving applications from minoritized and marginalized students, given their underrepresentation in the workforce in our field, thus we are intentionally reaching out to graduate programs at HBCUs, HSIs, TCUs and AANAPISIs with masters-level programs related to our work.  Further, NCHV is aware of the disproportionality of homelessness amongst minoritized communities. We believe it is important to include research conducted by students who understand the far-reaching effects of discrimination, inequity, and marginalization on housing and homelessness, as we address these issues moving forward.
 
This ten-month paid fellowship will begin on or around August 15, 2022. This remote position requires a commitment of 25 hours per week and includes a monthly stiped of $2900. For more details on how to apply, click on the link below.
