Funding the Future: Fellowships for Formerly Incarcerated People in California 

The California Criminal Justice Funders Group (CCJFG) is pleased to present an initial field scan of fellowship programs for formerly-incarcerated people in the state of California.

The report provides: a background on the project’s origins; an overview of the need for and value of fellowships for formerly-incarcerated people; discussion of research methodology and report terminology; a synthesis of the research findings; and key recommendations. This, first-of-its-kind research backing the report, was conducted in the fall of 2018. The data gathered through the research is intended to inform and engage funders about the diversity of fellowship opportunities throughout the state, the immense value of fellowships for formerly-incarcerated individuals, and how fellowships benefit California’s criminal justice reform movement.
