Spring 2016 Paid Public Service Fellows Internship Program with the Partnership for Public Service

DESCRIPTION

The Public Service Fellows Program at the Partnership for Public Service is an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates to participate directly in transforming the way government works while developing valuable professional skills.

Fellows work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment; their responsibilities vary across the Partnership’s internal teams but often include event planning and execution, conducting research, writing and preparing correspondence, and conducting outreach to external partners, such as government agencies and colleges and universities. Additionally, there is time allocated to support the organization by taking shifts to staff the front desk and assisting other teams as needed.

Fellows are assigned substantive and meaningful work to support our wide variety of programs, events and projects to help revitalize the federal government. True to the Partnership’s emphasis on people, the fellows program incorporates opportunities for professional and personal growth through workshops and trainings specifically geared toward students and young professionals. We also strive to ensure a quality experience in terms of work and personal relationships throughout the fellowship term. 

Fellows also receive the following stipends:

  • Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree receive $1000 per month.
  • Full-time fellows who are currently undergraduate students receive $800 per month.
  • Stipends for part-time fellows will be pro-rated accordingly.

Fellows Program Internship areas include:

  • Center for Government and Leadership
  • Communications
  • Development
  • Education and Outreach
  • Government Affairs
  • Government Transformation and Agency Partnerships
  • Graphic Design
  • Human Resources
  • Research

All fellowship positions are physically located in Washington, D.C. at the Partnership’s office. There are no current opportunities for fellows to work remotely. Applicants must be willing to relocate to Washington, D.C. for the duration of the term. Please note that the Partnership does not provide housing or relocation assistance for fellows.

We seek extraordinary undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates with:

  • A commitment to public service
  • Strong written and oral communication
  • Analytical thinking
  • An ability to work well in teams 


There is no single academic major or background we prefer over another—if you share our passion and are committed to developing your skills while gaining valuable experience, we want to hear from you!
