Illinois Dunn Fellowships
I wanted to pass along some information regarding an outstanding opportunity for recent college graduates to work in the Office of the Governor of the State of Illinois. This next group of Fellows begin their time in the Governor’s office on August 1st and will serve in either Springfield, Chicago, or Washington, D.C. for one calendar year in various departments including the Office of Management & Budget, Legislative Affairs, Policy, Communications, Federal Affairs, Intergovernmental Affairs & Outreach, and Government Transformation & Metrics. This is a once in a lifetime chance to get real world experience as a paid, full-time employee working alongside senior-level government aides working tirelessly to turn around the State of Illinois. I have attached (1) a one-page informational briefing on the position, (2) detailed instructions for the application process, as well as (3) a fillable PDF copy of the application. Further instructions for applying can be found on the Governor’s Internships & Fellowships page. However, time is running out and the deadline to submit the application, transcript (official or unofficial), personal cover letter and policy essay is Monday February 29, 2016 (11:59pm CST) however we will accept Letters of Recommendation to be submitted until COB Thursday, March 10. Only completed applications will be reviewed. In order for an application to be considered completed it must include a completed application (attached here), personal cover letter, policy essay (on an issue that has a great impact on the future of the State of Illinois), academic transcript (official or unofficial), as well as 2 letters of recommendation (1 from both an academic and professional source) sent to GOV.DunnFellowshipApp@illinois.gov.
