Applications now open: Jackson Munro Public Service Fellowship
In 2016, we are piloting a summer intensive Jackson Munro experience with students funded to engage in a public service project betweenJune 20-August 19th. Award amounts range from $3,000-$4,000 during summer quarter, depending on the number of Fellows selected. In addition to a monetary award, Jackson Munro Fellows are also supported through workshops and individualized coaching and mentoring throughout the summer.
Jackson Munro Public Service Fellows are selected for a summer intensive experience based on three primary factors:
- An established partnership with a non-profit or public sector organization
- A collaboratively thought out plan for a summer intensive project that will benefit the partnering organization while increasing student skills and learning
- An articulation of how the work of the Fellow will contribute to their development as a public servant and leader
Made possible through the support of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Fellowship is named for late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson and S. Sterling Munro, Jr., the former top aide to Senator Jackson and Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration.
The application deadline for the 2016 summer intensive Jackson Munro Fellowship is May 9, 2016. Students can learn more, and access the on line application, by visiting, http://www.washington.edu/carlson/public-service-fellowships-and-awards/jackson-munro-public-service-fellowship/
