Government Week at Mason Career Center – Fellowships for Government Careers

September 16, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Discover graduate fellowship opportunities that offer pathways into federal government and public service careers.

Some fellowship programs lead directly to employment in government agencies, offices, or laboratories. For example, alumni of the Rangel and Pickering Fellowships join the U.S. Foreign Service. Alumni of the Payne Fellowship join USAID, and Presidential Management Fellows receive two-year assignments in the federal government according to their qualifications and skills.

Other programs offer preferential access to government careers for program alumni, provide a point of entry through service requirements, or help alumni develop professional profiles and networks that prepare them to enter government and/or public service careers. For example, alumni of the Boren Awards programs serve for one year in the federal government following graduation – which affords an opportunity to gain experience, access, and connections. Participants in federal government-sponsored STEM fellowships such as DOD SMART, NDSEG, and CSGF, participate in paid internships in government labs.

Opportunities are also available at the state and local levels. The Virginia Governor’s Fellows Program offers state government experience, while “urban fellows” programs such as those in Washington D.C. and New York City offer experience in municipal government.

Learn about these programs and more with Mason’s Director of Graduate Fellowships Dr. Kay Agoston as part of Government Week at Mason Career Center.
