Graduating Student Opportunity: Apply to be a City Hall Fellow
Have you ever wondered what really goes on inside City Hall? Questioned why your city chose its policing strategy? Pondered how your tax dollars were being spent? Wished you could decide what potholes got repaired and what roads got re-paved – and how quickly? Developed a new way to help underprivileged children in your community?
If you are a college senior or recent college graduate, here’s your chance to try your hand at running your city. Spend a year inside the highest levels of city government and see how it works from the inside out. Be part of the policy decisions, from creation to design to evaluation to implementation. Be a part of the solution. Be a City Hall Fellow.
Since our 2008 launch, City Hall Fellows has trained 75 urban changemakers (selected from 1,700 applicants) who have transformed how three cities (San Francisco, Houston and Baton Rouge) operate. By design, our corps members are racially and socio-economically diverse. More than half are female. They hold undergraduate degrees in fields ranging from political science to economics to aerospace engineering.
Applications for the 9th cohort of City Hall Fellows are due Thursday, March 14 at 11:59 PM PT.
You will not be able to save partially-completed applications, so be sure you’ve prepared everything in the one-page Application Checklist before entering the on-line application system. You are also strongly urged to carefully review the Application Handbook for advice on preparing the most competitive application possible.
