Year Long Council Fellows Programs

Program Background

The Council is seeking three outstanding candidates with Master’s degree in policy-related programs (policy, public administration, planning, public health, law, etc.) who will graduate in spring 2022 or have graduated in the past 36-months. No experience required.

Fellows will work as part of the Council’s non-partisan central staff team, providing objective analysis of policies to the entire County Council. They will have the opportunity to work directly with other staff, Councilmembers, and staff in the Executive Branch and other agencies of County Government.

This is a one-year term position with the opportunity to renew for a second year based on performance and the Council’s needs. At the end of the Fellowship, Council staff will work with qualified Fellows to find full-time employment in Montgomery County Government. 

This program begins after six extremely successful years of the Council’s Summer Fellows program for students still in graduate school.
