INDIANAPOLIS – Listen up 2017 and 2018 college grads. If you are interested in government, then Gov. Eric Holcomb's Governor’s Fellowship program might be right for you.
The Governor’s Fellowship provides a unique experience in Indiana state government. The highly selective program recruits talented young women and men from across the state to 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.
To ask questions about the fellowship program, contact Katie Gilson at the Governor’s Office at (317) 232-4567.
