The Sterling and Gene Munro Public Service Fellowship encourages life-long commitment to public service by providing outstanding undergraduates with the opportunity to explore their potential through service and leadership in the community. Munro Public Service Fellows are selected on the basis of a proposed public service initiative and their commitment to community engagement. Made possible through the support of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Fellowship is named for S. Sterling Munro, Jr., the former top aide to the late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson and Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration, and his wife, Gene, a lifelong public service advocate. Munro Fellows will be selected in December of 2013 and will be awarded the fellowship during the Winter and Spring quarters of 2014.
Award amounts range from $2000 to $4000, depending on the number of fellows selected. In addition to a monetary award, Munro Fellows are also supported through workshops, and enrollment in one or more of the Carlson Center’s Community Based Leadership courses in winter and/or spring quarter. In addition, Munro Fellows receive individualized coaching about their community involvement by staff in the Carlson Center.
The application deadline for the 2014 Fellowship is 11:59PM on Friday, November 8, 2013. Application instructions and Fellowship expectations can be found online at http://www.washington.edu/carlson/sterling-and-gene-munro-public-service-fellowship/.
