Application Information

Applications still open (rolling admission)

The Federal and Global Fellows programs prepare talented, diverse undergraduate students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experience necessary to excel in professional internships and pursue careers of influence and impact, in the public sector and in our increasingly globalized society. Both are yearlong programs that combine a fall academic seminar taught by industry experts and a spring internship. All students have access to one-on-one coaching, workshops, special events, guest speakers and DC trips regardless of program/concentration.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to come by the office to learn more about the seven fall academic seminar courses/concentrations (each 20-23 students). In your application, you may rank the seminar courses/concentrations in order of preference across the Federal and Global programs.
