President Obama and Mrs. Obama would like to encourage talented leaders with disabilities to apply to the White House Fellows program. The White House Fellowship is one of the nation’s most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. Each year, 11-19 exceptional young men and women are selected to spend a year in Washington, D.C. to gain first-hand experience in the process of governing the nation at the highest levels of the Federal government.
Candidates need to be promising young leaders who are excelling early in their careers and are committed to leadership and public service. Thus, this is not for students but rather for individuals already into their careers.
The deadline is February 1, 2010. Visit the website to learn more and apply.
