Details of Hatfield Resident Fellowship
Hatfield Resident Fellowship Focus
The Hatfield Resident Fellows program targets postgraduate Master and Ph.D. students with a strong scholarship record and confirmed interest in public service and leadership. The Fellowship is an academically rigorous, project-oriented, educational experience designed to provide each Fellow with an opportunity to acquire leadership skills with a public service agency in Oregon.
Hatfield Resident Fellows have the following commitments:
- Program Dates: July 8, 2013 - February 28, 2014
- Program includes 32 active work weeks in addition to an initial 4-day orientation session and an observed winter break
- All Hatfield Resident Fellows will attend learning and networking events*
*These ongoing training and professional development activities aim to supplement each Hatfield Fellow's subject matter expertise by increasing their leadership and management capabilities. In addition, these events give CPS an opportunity to teach the Fellows about the Northwest's rich policy heritage, the ethics and values that continue to shape the Northwest's policy making process, and introduce the Fellows to key decision makers.
Details of the Hatfield Fellowship
The program targets students from the following disciplines:
- Public policy
- Public administration
- Business administration
- Sustainability and natural resources management
- Computer science and information studies
- Industrial and process engineering
Other disciplines pertinent to public management and public service will gladly be considered from well-qualified applicants with the provision that our selections are ultimately driven by matching the requirements of our sponsors to the aspiration of our applicants, so certain disciplines and skills are more easily matched than others.
Each Hatfield Fellowship will start in on July 8, 2013. Therefore, candidates must graduate or have graduated from their existing Master or Ph.D. program within the last year or will receive their degree by June 30, 2013.
