Basic Information about Becoming a Brandeis Segal Fellow:
Fellows will include undergraduates who will be juniors or seniors at Brandeis University in fall of academic year 2013-2014 and for Heller School students who will be in their second year of the MPP program in fall 2013.
Once selected, Fellows will be assigned to government and nonprofit agencies in Boston, New York City and Washington, DC, (other cities available upon fellow request) which have agreed to provide meaningful experiences to help students develop their leadership skills and capacities. Host sites may be in any sector, including health care, youth development, environment, and education. Undergraduate students will be awarded a $3,500 stipend to cover living expenses and graduate students will receive a $5,000 stipend. (Stipends are supported by a fund established by friends and family of Eli J. Segal. All stipends will be provided directly from Brandeis University.)
Interns will become lifelong members of the Segal Citizen Leadership Network and will have opportunities to learn from and contribute to the Segal Network. Opportunities will include regular meetings with Brandeis Segal Fellows and other outstanding young men and women who have been Segal Fellows at the Corporation for National and Community Service, City Year, and AmeriCorps Alums, and interactions with mentors who worked closely with Eli Segal in the Clinton Administration and in other aspects of his career.
