Texas Appleseed does not have its own funding for fellowships, but we will support applications from qualified respondents to fellowship programs like those offered by Skadden, Equal Justice Works and Soros Justice Fellowships. We accept applicants in one of four program areas:
- Fair Financial Access: We work with a broad coalition of organizations to promote meaningful regulation of high-cost payday and auto title loans in Texas. We also work to build resources and tools for victims of coerced debt and financial abuse, are studying fairness in auto insurance pricing, and exploring impacts of data privacy and new financial technologies on the financial wellbeing of Texans. We need assistance with research, developing policy recommendations, and encouraging market reform.
- Fair Housing and Disaster Recovery: Texas Appleseed has worked hard to ensure that the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery program addresses the needs of low- and moderate-income households still struggling to rebuild after disasters. In addition, we work on fair housing issues, to help ensure that public investments are made with the aim of reducing barriers to opportunity, and ensuring access to quality jobs, schools, and services.
- Education Justice: Our research shows a link between school discipline, school dropout, and future involvement in the juvenile justice system. We work to improve school discipline practices and develop policy recommendations around arrest, ticketing and use of force in Texas public schools.
