In what public service fields are Fellows from the FELPS employed?
We strongly encourage anyone in a public service position to apply. This includes people working for nonprofit organizations, government agencies, offices of elected officials, philanthropic foundations and programs, think tanks, and private corporations focused on public service work (such as corporate social responsibility programs or in partnership programs with government).
In the past, Fellows have come from a range of backgrounds and interests including: education, health, the environment, public policy, social justice, and international affairs to name a few. The program provides tools for successful leaders in any field of public service work. Sessions are not field-specific and are intended for emerging leaders across the full spectrum of public service, whether you are a public school teacher or a policy analyst in a government agency or nonprofit.
