Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship

Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship
Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship is for students and young professionals seeking experience in HIV-related public policy and government affairs. It is open to current students and recent graduates who want to gain a professional understanding of HIV, advocacy, and public policy.

Fellowships are offered in the Fall, Spring, and Summer. Fellowships are based at the AIDS United office in Washington, DC. and includes a monthly stipend. Fellows spend a minimum of 30 hours per week on program activities, leaving the remaining time to explore Washington, DC, or attend professional development events, conferences or networking opportunities.

The Fellowship runs for 4 months during the fall and spring semesters and 3 months during the summer. Fellows will be involved in policy functions, briefings on Capitol Hill, and other related events. The AIDS United office in Washington, DC is located downtown just blocks from The White House and in easy proximity to public transportation.

The Pedro Zamora Public Policy Fellowship at AIDS United was established to honor the legacy of HIV/AIDS activist Pedro Zamora. Zamora was one of the first openly gay men with HIV to appear in popular television. Before he passed away in 1994, he was a strong advocate for federal HIV prevention and care programs and encouraged young people to become actively involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JULY of each year, and the award amount is usually $4,000.
