MPA Invites Applications 
for the 
2019-2020 Eleanor Rosenblum Fellowship
 
The Massachusetts Psychological Association (MPA) is inviting applications for the 2019-2020 Eleanor Rosenblum Fellowship in psychology and public policy. The Rosenblum Fellowship provides a unique opportunity to learn the processes by which public, social, and mental health policy are created. The program offers active participation in MPA advocacy on several levels, both within and beyond the organization itself. By studying the interface between psychological knowledge and social issues, and by having direct experience with legislative, political and policy-making procedures, the Rosenblum Fellow will be in a position to take an active role in the future leadership of the profession of Psychology.

The Rosenblum Fellowship will enable the candidate to observe and participate in the Association's governance process. To this end, the Fellow will attend Advocacy Steering meetings, play an integral role on MPA's new Public Issue Review Committee (PIRC), and observe and participate in legislative hearings and lobbying activities.
