Beginning this fall, Oakland University students and recent graduates will have an opportunity to gain experience in government operations through the Public Service Fellowship Program.
Participants will earn valuable professional and personal skills through a series of workshops and trainings, while building key relationships with other fellows, instructors, and community members.
With an emphasis on building and developing a qualified and caring group of young professionals, the fellowships are open to undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates regardless of program or major. Fellowships will be available for the fall 2011 and spring 2012 terms.
Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree will receive a $1000 per month stipend, while full-time fellows who are currently undergraduate students will receive an $800 per month stipend and part-time fellows will receive a pro-rated stipend.
The program is funded through the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works.
Positions will encompass tasks and responsibilities in nine different focus areas such as government affairs, communications, corporate strategies, accounting, education and outreach, development and fundraising and more.
All fellows must demonstrate a commitment to public service, strong written and oral communication skills, analytical thinking and the ability to work well in teams. The deadline to apply is Friday, July 8. For more information or to apply, view the website.
