GovCorps is a non-profit organization that helps train the next generation of government leaders. We are working to create an equitable government that is representative of all of the people it serves. We do this by getting students who demonstrate financial need and come from underrepresented or under-served communities interested in public service in high school, investing in their education, and providing them with real work experience.

Check out our scholarship, fellowship and academic grant programs below.

Our Programs

GovCorps is there for students from high school through college graduation and beyond. While not every student will take the whole journey with us, we will provide resources for anyone who receives a GovCorps scholarship from their freshman year of college through their job hunt after graduation.

Scholarships

GovCorps is committed to helping students interested in government achieve their educational and professional dreams. High school seniors who demonstrate financial need and come from underrepresented or under-served communities can apply for a $2,500 college scholarship. Becoming a GovCorps Scholar not only has a financial benefit, it gives students to access to additional GovCorps programs in college and beyond.

Fellowships

Students who receive a scholarship through the GovCorps Scholars program can apply for a paid fellowship during their sophomore or junior year of college. Fellows will work with GovCorps to choose a city, county, state or federal government official or agency for the eight-week program. The fellowship, worth over $8,500, includes a stipend, housing and transportation allowances, along with funding for other expenses so the entire experience is cost-free for the fellows.

Grants
