What We Do:
The Florida Gubernatorial Fellows Program was created from the belief that the best way to ensure Florida’s greatness is to actively educate and cultivate its future leaders.
This non-partisan program immerses students from public and private universities in key areas of state government. During their nine-month tenure in Tallahassee, Fellows receive advanced on-the-job training as well as an invaluable front-line view of the inner workings of government.
As Fellows, participants fulfill roles of critical responsibility, interact closely with the state’s top leaders and employ their skills and abilities in a highly rewarding environment.
Who We Need:
The best and the brightest! Only the most exceptional Florida undergraduate and graduate students are selected for this prestigious fellowship.
Demonstrated achievement is an important place to start; however it takes more than that to be a Florida Fellow.
Fellows are passionate about public service and making our incredible state even better. They work well with partners and colleagues from a diverse spectrum of backgrounds, cultures and political affiliations.
They think on their feet and take the initiative when opportunities arise, conceive innovative solutions and contribute to major decisions. Sometimes all on their first day!
