Public Service Recruiting Day is a bold effort to connect leading public service organizations with students to conduct one-on-one interviews with seniors and speak about post-graduate employment and fellowships. Public Service Recruiting Day for the Class of 2022 will be scheduled for Fall 2021.
Offices Supporting Post-Graduate Service
The IOP Office of Career Services (IOP OCS) supports student exploration of careers in public service. The IOP OCS informs students about ways to serve and how pursue job opportunities in the public sector.
The Office of Career Services offers funding for students to pursue post-graduate experiences in public service, such as the Carnegie Endowment Junior Fellowship and the Postgraduate Public Service Fellowships like the Pforzheimer and Richardson fellowships.
Established in 1983, Priscilla Chan Stride Service Program (formerly known as Stride Rite) supports students of diverse economic and social backgrounds as they become leaders in their communities, both as undergraduates and beyond. To do this, the program provides reflection and skill development opportunities, mentorship, and financial assistance.
PBHA’s Priscilla Chan Stride Service Program Postgraduate Fellowships are intended for Harvard seniors who were devoted to service as undergraduates, and who demonstrate a future lifetime commitment to service. The spirit of the award is to provide fellows with the opportunity to put their vision for social change into action. Each fellow is awarded up to $30,000.
The grant money from the Phillips Brooks House Association is intended to support the fellow’s living expenses as they work on a public interest project full-time in the year following graduation.
Harvard students are eligible for a number of fellowships both through the University and outside organizations. The list below will be updated as deadlines become available.
