2021-22 White House Fellows, Applications close 1/6/21

White House Fellows are extraordinary Americans, competitively selected by the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, who have demonstrated remarkable achievement early in their careers and have a proven commitment to service.

The White House Fellows program is non-partisan and has been a fixture across Republican and Democratic presidential administrations. 

During their year in Washington, Fellows are placed as advisors to senior White House staff, Cabinet Secretaries, and other top-ranking government officials. The Fellows frequently meet with top leaders in public, private, and non-profit sectors to discuss the policy-making process as well as ideas and issues concerning leadership and service. They also participate in a robust education program that includes conversations with a range of leaders, domestic and international policy trips, and first-hand leadership development with senior government leaders.

The deadline to apply is 1/6/21. Go here from more information.
