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.

My own service-learning experience helped me to change my undergraduate major to social work. As a student worker with the program, I gained so many skills that helped me to be successful as a social worker and change agent after graduation. Now I help student workers develop these same skills and find the same passion for creating positive change that I have felt."
