Considered one of the most prestigious fellowships for leadership and public service, the White House Fellows Program provides gifted and highly motivated Americans with some first-hand experience in the process of governing the Nation and a sense of personal involvement in the leadership of society. This highly competitive program brings together men and women from all walks of life who have achieved success in their individual fields. The 11 to 19 selected fellows are invited to come to D.C. for one year and serve at the highest levels of the executive branch.
