The White House Fellows Program 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. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly non-partisan basis.

Learn more about the White House Fellows program at an event featuring former White House Fellows, including Diane C. Yu, Chief of Staff and Deputy to the President of NYU and Past President of the White House Fellows Foundation and Association. Applications for the program are due by January 15, 2011.

The event is sponsored by the Office of Career Services and the Research Center for Leadership in Action at NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and the Office of the President of New York University.
