White House Fellows spend a year working as full-time, paid special assistants to senior White House Staff, the Vice President, Cabinet Secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in a once-in-a-lifetime education program consisting of off-the-record, roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors, and take trips to study leaders and policy in action both domestically and internationally. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly competitive, non-partisan basis. One goal of the Fellowship is that Fellows return to their communities and private or public sector careers with additional leadership skills and insights gained from working with the nation's top public sector leaders.
The program has fostered a legacy of leadership, with nearly 600 alumni who are respected leaders in a variety of fields and professions. Alumni include former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, General Wesley Clark, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, former National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane, former President of the MIT Corporation Dana Mead, and countless other leaders in our country.
Applications are now available online and must be postmarked by 5:59 pm (EST) on Thursday, January 15, 2015 for the 2015-2016 Class.
The program commences in September of each year. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Employees of the Federal government are not eligible unless they are career military personnel. There are no age restrictions; however the program was created to give remarkable young Americans this experience while they were early to mid-career. Fellows typically are at between 26 and 38 years of age. Applicants must have completed their undergraduate studies and be working in their chosen professions at the time of consideration. More information about the program can be found here or by calling the program office at (202) 395-4522.
