The John Gardner Public Service Fellowship Program
This Fellowship program selects six Fellows during the spring semester from among the graduating classes at UC Berkeley and Stanford University and provides each a $50,000 stipend to work in the governmental or nonprofit organization that matches their public service interests for ten months. Past fellows have been placed at such organizations as the White House Office of Science and Technology, the State Department, and Governor Newsom's office. During their Fellowship, fellows are paired with a senior-level mentor who guides their professional growth and development and provides opportunities and exposure, which exceeds what is normally available to a recent graduate. The goal of the John Gardner Fellowship is to provide meaningful postgraduate leadership opportunities and to encourage UC Berkeley’s best students to pursue a career in public service.
Each university has its own selection process and deadlines. This site is for UC Berkeley students interested in applying for the Gardner Fellowship.
Stanford University students should consult with the Haas Center for Public Service for details on how to apply to Stanford's Gardner Fellowship Program.
