Public Service Fellows Program

Great news! The Public Service Fellows Program application is now open for Fall 2011.
The Program:
This is an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates to participate directly in transforming the way government works while developing valuable professional skills.
True to the Partnership’s emphasis on people, the Public Service Fellows Program incorporates opportunities for professional and personal growth through workshops and trainings specifically geared toward students and young professionals. We also strive to ensure a quality experience in terms of work and personal relationships throughout the fellowship term.
Who Should Apply:
We seek extraordinary undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates with:
* A commitment to public service;
* Strong written and oral communication;
* Analytical thinking; and
* An ability to work well in teams.
There is no single academic major or background we prefer over another – if students share our passion and are committed to developing their skills while gaining valuable experience, we want to hear from them!
How to Apply:
Please encourage students to apply on the Partnership’s Public Service Fellows Program website! Public Service Fellows Program at http://apps.ourpublicservice.org/fellows/default.aspx
Dates and Salaries:
The fall Fellowship term runs from September to December, but start and end dates are flexible based on teams.
* Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree receive a $1000/month stipend.
* Full-time fellows who are currently undergraduate students receive an $800/month stipend.
* Part-time fellow stipends will be pro-rated accordingly.
Selection Process:
Fellowship positions are available in nine different focus areas. Applicants should apply for a particular position(s) based on their skills and interests. They may apply for multiple fellowship positions, but must fill out an application for each position individually.
If you have questions, please feel free to email us at fellows@ourpublicservice.org. Thank you in advance for spreading the word about this great opportunity.
