White House Fellows Program

Official site:
Final Deadline: January 15, 2015 Application and supporting documents due by 5:59 PM EST

Founded in 1964, the White House Fellows Program is one of America's most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. White House Fellows typically 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 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. In return for the privilege of participating in the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to repay the privilege by contributing to the Nation as future leaders.

Application process opens November 1, 2014. Visit the website for more information.
