The White House Fellows Program, founded in 1964 by President Lyndon Johnson, is America's most prestigious program for leadership and public service, offering exceptional men and women first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the federal government.  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 a once-in-a-lifetime education program consisting of off-the-record, roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors, and take trips to study leaders and policy in action both domestically and internationally.
