For Immediate Release: Jun 13, 2005
Eight selected as Governors Fellows
INDIANAPOLIS (June 13, 2005) – Eight of Indiana’s young leaders have been selected to the Governor’s Fellowship, a year-long program giving recent college graduates experience in various state agencies

INDIANAPOLIS (June 13, 2005) – Eight of Indiana’s young leaders have been selected to the Governor’s Fellowship, a year-long program giving recent college graduates experience in various state agencies.

 

Fellows participate in the daily activities of state government, complete special projects, travel to observe how work in the Capitol translates into action throughout the state, and experience firsthand how policy is made.

 

“These young leaders will experience the rewards of public service through hands-on opportunities,” said Governor Mitch Daniels. “It is an exciting time to be a part of state government and this group will have an impact as they develop skills that will serve them throughout their careers.”

 

The Governor’s Fellowship program was created in 1983 by Governor Bob Orr and is open to college graduates who receive their bachelor’s degrees in either fall of 2004 or spring of 2005. While any such graduate may apply, special consideration is given to applicants from Indiana, and candidates who have a B- or above grade point average.

 

The year of service corresponds with the state fiscal year, July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006, during which Fellows receive a competitive salary plus full fringe benefits.
