Governor Crist Announces New Gubernatorial Fellows

Two are UF Students, Three are UF Alumnae

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Governor Charlie Crist last week announced the members of the fourth class of the Gubernatorial Fellowship Program. Students participating in the program will gain first-hand experience into how state government operates.

"I commend this class of fellows for choosing to learn more about the high calling of public service to the people of Florida," Governor Crist said. "I am confident each student will gain valuable on-the-job experience that will help them in whatever career paths they choose."

Students were selected based on a competitive application process, which included the ability to show strong leadership, written and oral communication skills, community activism, and a desire to serve the people of Florida. They will work in the Executive Office of the Governor or in Governor's agencies, depending on their area of study. Fellows will be expected to work a minimum of 20 hours each week and will receive an hourly wage for their time on the job. To broaden the fellows' exposure to state government and enhance their experience, they will also meet weekly as a group to participate in educational activities such as presentations, press conferences, budget briefings and policy briefings.

The following 11 students have been selected for the fourth class:

The program begins on June 30 and ends on Dec.12, 2008. Students are enrolled in classes, either at Florida State University or Florida A&M University in Tallahassee or through distance learning courses provided by their home institutions.

Applications for the 2009 Gubernatorial Fellows Class will be available online from July 1 through Sept. 15, 2008.
