Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship

DEADLINE: February 11, 2013

The city of Baltimore is now accepting applications for the Summer 2013 Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship program. The program is highly selective and provides broad exposure to the highest level of local government officials in a city that is nationally recognized for its innovative urban management programs.

The Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship is one of the best urban policy fellowships in the country. Students accepted into the program are provided with a unique opportunity for on-the-job training in one of several municipal agencies through a ten-week, full-time summer experience. The objective of the program is to encourage talented individuals with an interest in public service to seek permanent positions within City government at the conclusion of their degree. Fellows are placed in agencies such as Recreation and Parks, Finance, Police Department, Health Department, the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods, and Policy and Communications.

In addition, the Fellows attend a weekly speaker series featuring leaders from government, business, foundations, and the media. The Fellows also attend community activities. In previous years, participants completed a day with Outward Bound, served dinner at a homeless shelter, cleared dog walkways at the City’s animal shelter and painted an inner city school. 

Undergraduates finishing their senior year are eligible to apply, as are graduate students from every discipline. You do not need to be a Baltimore City or Maryland resident to apply There is a stipend of $5,000 for participants.
