The White House Fellowship, founded by president Lydon B. Johnson in 1964, is a nonpartisan program designed to take in the strongest young leaders and public servants and provide them with first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the Federal government. Fellows will spend a year full-time as a paid fellow to a senior member of the White House Staff, Cabinet Secretaries, or another top-ranking government official. Fellows also participate in an Education Program which consists of roundtable discussions with leaders from the private and public sectors.
The WHFF is hosting a webinar to introduce the program tomorrow August 5, 2021, at 7 pm ET.
