Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced today that applications will be accepted through April 6 for the 2018-2019 Governor’s Fellowship.
The Governor’s Fellowship provides a unique experience in Indiana state government. The program is highly selective, recruiting talented young men and women from across the state who will serve in various state agencies on a rotating basis for one year.
“My administration is all about using every tool we have to make life better for all Hoosiers,” Holcomb said. “Governor’s Fellows become a part of our hardworking team dedicated to taking Indiana to the next level.”
The program is open to college graduates who receive their bachelor’s degrees in either the fall of 2017 or the spring of 2018. Fellows, who are paid, full-time employees, participate in the daily activities and operation of state government, complete special projects, and experience firsthand how policies are made.
Many of those who have participated as Governor’s Fellows over the past two decades have gone on to successful careers in both the public and private sector — with some serving at the highest levels of local, state and federal government.
The application and submission guidelines can be found online at www.in.gov/gov/fellowship.htm. To be eligible for consideration, the application and all supporting materials must be postmarked or submitted via email by April 6, 2018.
