The White House Fellows Program!  
WHAT IS THE WHITE HOUSE FELLOWS PROGRAM?
Over fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, and over the course of nine presidential administrations the nonpartisan program has become one of the nation’s premier fellowships for leadership and public service. The program’s mission is to give Fellows firsthand experience in public service at the highest levels of the Federal Government. The program consists of a full-time work placement, a robust education program designed to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the inner workings of government, and intensive leadership development training. It is an extraordinary year that yields a lifetime of rewards and strengthened abilities to create positive impact in communities across our nation.
