UC selects its first class of Presidential Public Service fellows
President Janet Napolitano has awarded fellowships to 27 undergraduates from across the UC system who will participate in public service internships this coming fall in Washington, D.C., and Sacramento.
Students from each of UC’s nine undergraduate campuses were selected for the Presidential Public Service Fellowships following a competitive application process. Fellows were selected based on a demonstrated commitment to civic engagement and public service. They will each receive a $2,500 stipend to offset incidental costs related to public service internships through the UC Washington Center (UCDC) or the UC Center Sacramento (UCCS).
Napolitano, who was herself a Truman Scholar, created the Presidential Public Service Fellowship program in Feb. 2016 to spur student interest in public service careers, and to ensure that cost was not a barrier to student participation in federal or state internships.
