Post-Graduation Public Service Programs

Want to spend a year or two after graduation making a difference in the country and/or world? Committing to full time service and/or public service fellowships after graduating from college has grown increasingly popular. In fact, many of today's distinguished leaders in fields including politics, business and journalism have completed such terms of service through national and international programs. Alumni of these programs not only gain the satisfaction of having contributed to the public good, but may leave with that edge needed to attain acceptance into lucrative grad programs and professional positions in their fields.

As these programs grow increasingly selective, let the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement support you in preparing for the application process. It's never too early to start! Click here for more information or contact the Lindy Center at cce@drexel.edu for more information.
