Through the fellowship, aspiring professionals with master’s or other advanced degrees have the opportunity to work with the state’s top executive leaders on projects that support Governor Wolf’s priorities of Schools that Teach, Jobs that Pay and Government that Works.As student at Dartmouth College, Governor Wolf himself made a decision that changed the course of his life and the lives of many others by answering the call to service. He interrupted his studies to join the Peace Corps and served two years in a small village in India before returning to finish his undergraduate degree.Just as the Peace Corps was a transformative time in the life of Governor Wolf, we want the William Penn Fellowship to be a rewarding and challenging experience for participants.Governor Wolf is challenging the best and the brightest minds to answer the call to public service with the William Penn Fellowship.Whether working to create policies to attract new industries, ensure that every child in Pennsylvania has access to a high-quality education, or improve the effectiveness of programs our citizens depend on, the William Penn Fellows will be working to address real-life issues facing our commonwealth. Fellows will also be challenged to look at the future state of the commonwealth and how we build, innovate and adapt in a rapidly changing world.If you or someone you know has an advanced degree and a passion for public service, tell them to go to www.pennfellowship.pa.gov to learn more about the William Penn Fellowship. Applications for the program must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on October 21, 2016.   SHARE  TWEETlast_img read more
