Information for Academic and Career Directors

The Local Government Management Fellowship Program welcomes students to apply each September. Visit for application details and complete deadlines. Finalists are placed in local governments nationwide to assume real responsibility, thrive in an environment that recognizes potential, and gain unique exposure to local government management. The fellowship was created to help new graduates and career changers break into local government with that first critical job.

Below you can download PDF versions of a student recruiting poster, as well as a flyer-version for handout or email distribution to students, and a flyer designed to recruit host governments if anyone in your program has contacts in local government. The greatest growth in both applicants and host communities has been by word-of-mouth, so your help promoting the program is invaluable. Please inform your students about this exciting career-placement opportunity!
