Founded in 1964, the White House Fellows program is one of America's most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. White House Fellowships offer exceptional young men and women first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the federal government.
Selected individuals typically spend a year working as a full-time, paid Fellow to senior White House Staff, Cabinet Secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors, and trips to study U.S. policy in action both domestically and internationally. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly non-partisan basis.
Selection as a White House Fellow is based on a combination of the following criteria:
a) A record of remarkable professional achievement early in one's career.
b) Evidence of leadership skills and the potential for further growth.
c) A demonstrated commitment to public service.
d) The skills to succeed at the highest levels of the Federal government, and the ability to work effectively as part of a team.
