The Public Service Fellows Program at the Partnership for Public
Program Background: At the Partnership, fellows are integral to the day-to-day operations, programs and activities of our organization. We value the contributions of fellows and work to provide relevant and useful experiences in return. Fellows are assigned substantive and meaningful work to support our wide variety of programs, events and projects to help revitalize the federal government by focusing on the people working in it. Fellows' duties vary across the Partnership's internal teams, but often include event planning and execution, conducting research, writing and preparing correspondence, and conducting outreach to external partners, such as government agencies and colleges and universities.
Fellowship Description: True to the Partnership's emphasis on people, the 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. Fellows also receive the following stipends: Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree receive $1000 per month and full-time fellows who are currently undergraduate students receive $800 per month. (Stipends for part-time fellows will be pro-rated accordingly).
Candidate Qualifications: Seeking 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 you share our passion and are committed to developing your skills while gaining valuable experience, we want to hear from you!
