Excellence in Government and
e-Government Fellows Programs (500911)

About the Programs

The Partnership for Public Service Excellence in Government and e-Government Fellows programs emphasize a practical, immediate, hands-on approach to learning to lead for results. 

The programs require participants to be away from their position for approximately 20 days over the course of the year.

The Excellence in Government Fellows and e-Government Fellows programs are proven, recognized initiatives focused on building strong public-sector leadership and management, driven by innovation and focused on results. Over the course of a year, during which Fellows remain in their full-time jobs, the programs concentrate on achieving results and delivering powerful lessons about leadership.

The programs offer a transformational experience that encourages Fellows to think differently and lead more effectively. The programs draw on the Partnership for Public Service's cross-sector approach to tap expertise from top practitioners in both the public and private sectors. 

The Fellows programs are central to the Partnership for Public Service's mission of improving the performance and accountability of government. The programs are designed to give Fellows strategic tools as well as opportunities to exercise results-oriented leadership under the guidance of highly skilled and experienced professionals. They provide the ultimate on-the-job development for leaders in government.
