Wilmington University Invites Students to Participate in the Partnership in Public Service’s Fall Public Service Fellows Program

Starting this month, Wilmington University invites all students and recent graduates interested in public service and national government to apply for the Partnership in Public Service’s illustrious Public Service Fellows Program. The Public Service Fellows Program is a perfect opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates to participate directly in transforming the way government works while developing valuable professional skills.

The Partnership for Public Service was founded in 2001 and is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to revitalize federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve.

True to the Partnership’s emphasis on people, the Public Service Fellows Program incorporates opportunities for professional and personal growth through workshops and trainings specifically geared toward students and young professionals.

Fellows’ duties vary across the Partnership’s internal teams, but often include event planning and execution, conducting research, writing and preparing correspondence, and conducting outreach to external partners, such as government agencies and colleges and universities.

The Partnership for Public Service is looking for candidates who display:

A commitment to public service;

Strong written and oral communication;

Analytical thinking; and

An ability to work well in teams.

Wilmington University is dedicated to preparing students for public service in a variety of industries, including public interest, government, and non-profit organizations. The University’s popular Government and Public Policy Bachelor of Science degree program is designed to help students develop the skills they need to play a key role in developing and implementing policies important to public life.
