TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA - Tallahassee Mayor-Elect Andrew Gillum launched a Fellowship opportunity for high-achieving graduate students from Florida A&M University and Florida State University this week, in an effort to build stronger relationships with the universities, and to attract and retain some of the community's best and brightest.

The Tallahassee Mayoral Fellows program will offer participants an opportunity to meaningfully engage with key areas of City government, and serve in invaluable front-line positions alongside top leaders of City Hall. Fellows will also be empowered to develop and execute an original policy or program proposal while serving in the yearlong position, while receiving an hourly salary and scholarship support from their respective institution.

"The importance of further developing Tallahassee as a destination where talented and innovative young people choose to lay roots cannot be overstated," said Mayor-Elect Gillum. "I think we ought to do our part to advance this vision within City Hall, and I am very excited to see the fruitful contributions these young and energetic public servants will make to the work we do for the citizens of Tallahassee."

Applications for the Fellowship program are available at This LINK and will be available until November 17th at 5pm.
