John Gardner Public Service Fellowships

Stanford University - CA, California

At Stanford University, students who have a record of academic excellence, public service commitment, and leadership potential are awarded with the financial support that makes it easier for them to engage in further community service. Each year, three seniors are awarded John Gardner Public Service Fellowships. The eleven-month fellowships carry a stipend of $15,000 and offer new graduates the opportunity to work in the public sector under the guidance of a mentor.

I know of no other educational organization that has a track record like Campus Compact's. It is a phenomenal success, not just in terms of growth in numbers, but in terms of the impact it's had on communities, on campuses, and on individual lives."
