About the CPWI Fellowship

The DBHR Fellowship program is a 9-10 month fellowship, designed to expand the field of substance use disorder prevention and build capacity in communities that could benefit from CPWI.

The fellowship can be broken down in to three phases: Phase 1 in Olympia, Washington working within the DBHR office; Phase 2 in an existing CPWI community in Washington State, acting as a mentee under a current CPWI Coalition Coordinator; and Phase 3 in a high-need community.
