The Partnership for Public Service’s Fellowship Program provides paid internships at the organization’s offices in Washington, D.C. in specialized assignments that support its mission, including accounting, communications, development, education and outreach, and research.  Fellowships are offered for three terms each year—summer, fall, and spring.

Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree are paid $1,000 per month, while full-time fellows who are still working toward their degree are paid $800 per month. 

Undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates from any academic background are encouraged to apply.  The program is most interested in applicants with a strong commitment to public service who also possess strong written and oral communication skills, a capacity for analytical thinking, and an ability to work well in teams.  Candidates must also specify a particular fellowship offering for which they are applying (e.g., communications), and should also have relevant experience for that area.
