The 2016-2017 White House Fellows application is now LIVE. The deadline for application submission is January 12, 2016.

Fifty-one years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. Over the course of nine presidential administrations the non-partisan White House Fellows program has become the nation’s premiere fellowship for public service and leadership. White House Fellows are remarkable Americans with a commitment to service who come to Washington to gain first-hand, high-level experience in the Federal government and develop themselves as leaders. The fellowship year consists of a full-time work placement in the offices of Cabinet Secretaries, senior White House staff, and other high-ranking Administration officials. In addition, Fellows participate in a robust education program designed to provide a behind-the-scenes look at leadership in government, non-profits, business, the media and more. Learn more about the White House Fellows program here.

It is an exciting time for the Fellowship! The 2016-2017 class has the chance to be a witness a fascinating part of our democracy – the transfer of power from one administration to the next. In the past, this has been a rich experience for Fellows resulting in amazing opportunities to serve. We are proud that the White House Fellows program is non-partisan and has been a fixture of nine Presidential administrations – five Republican and four Democrat.
