UC launches Presidential Public Service Fellowship program
On Feb. 18, UC announced the creation of the Presidential Public Service Fellowship program, aimed at encouraging more undergraduate students to apply for public service internships in Washington, D.C., and Sacramento.
“Our goal is to catalyze student interest in public service careers,” President Janet Napolitano said in announcing the fellowship program. “There are few callings that are as essential to a healthy democracy as a career in public service.”
The fellowships will provide $2,500 in need-based financial support to select students who apply for and are accepted into the internship programs run by either the UC Washington Program (UCDC) or the UC Center Sacramento (UCCS). Anyone accepted into either program is eligible to apply for a fellowship.
