The Leonard D. Schaeffer Fellows in Government Service Program

This internship is part of the Leonard D. Schaeffer Fellows in Government Service program. LDSF exposes undergraduate students to government work and its impact through 10-week, full-time, high-level internship placements with elected officials and agencies at the federal, state, and local levels. While not all Schaeffer Fellows pursue a career in government, the program creates the opportunity for participants to become engaged citizens and develop an informed view of government service and operations. Schaeffer Fellows are selected from five universities – Harvard University; Princeton University; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Southern California; and the University of Virginia.

Schaeffer Fellows represent a diversity of backgrounds, political perspectives, and academic disciplines. Common among them is their interest in learning more about public service and the role of government. Schaeffer Fellows interact with government officials and constituents; track legislation; conduct research; draft policy memos and constituent letters; attend meetings, hearings, and events; support program development and implementation; contribute to daily office operations; and develop lasting professional networks with government officials and other interns.
