Leadership in Government Fellowship
The Open Society Foundations’ Leadership in Government Fellowship Program was founded in 2016 to support former senior-level government staff in the United States who have recently left public service and have played a significant role in advancing social change from within government in the United States at the local, state, or federal levels. In 2017, the Open Society's U.S. Programs will recruit for our second class of fellows.
We are interested in public sector leaders that have a deep interest in using this fellowship opportunity to reflect on their time in government and to undertake a project that advances policy ideas and inserts their unique perspectives about making change from within government into the public dialogue. The fellowship is part of a larger effort within the U.S. Programs and the Open Society Foundations to invest in new voices that inform and challenge our collective thinking about advancing open society in the United States. Please see the fellowship guidelines for more information on the grant making program and how to apply.
Fellows will receive a stipend (in a general range of $90,000 to $130,000) depending on work experience, seniority, and percentage of time committed to the project, which will range from 12 to 18 months in duration.
