OVC awards fellowships to individuals to work with OVC on specific topics or purpose areas to enhance the efforts of OVC to facilitate the understanding, development, or enhancement of innovative programs, models, practices, and protocols that serve crime victims. Fellowships also foster the professional development of practitioners in the victim assistance field by providing them an opportunity to work closely with federal staff, contractors, grantees, and a myriad of public and private organizations in Washington, DC, and throughout the Nation.

The Human Trafficking Survivor-Informed Services Fellow will promote “survivor-informed” services for victims of human trafficking and ultimately to promote engagement and leadership of human trafficking survivors in all aspects of anti-human trafficking activities, particularly the delivery of services.
