The Jackson Munro Public Service Fellowship (formerly the Sterling and Gene Munro Public Service Fellowship) encourages a life-long commitment to public service by providing outstanding undergraduates with the opportunity to explore their potential through service and leadership in the community.

Jackson Munro Public Service Fellows are selected based on the strength of a public service project proposed in collaboration with a public sector (non-profit or governmental) organization.

Factors influencing the selection of Munro Public Service Fellows include:

  • Historical commitment to and involvement with community engagement activities
  • Depth of partnership/relationship with proposed public sector partner
  • Scope and impact of proposed work during the Fellowship
  • Potentially sustainability of proposed project, how will the organization sustain this work at the end of your Fellowship?
  • Connection between proposed project, academic studies, and professional/educational goals and objectives

Made possible through the support of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Fellowship is named for late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, S. Sterling Munro, Jr., the former top aide to Senator Jackson and Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration, and Gene Munro, a lifelong advocate for public service and the wife of S. Sterling Munro Jr.

The application deadline for the 2016 Fellowship is 11:59PM on Monday, November 9thApplication instructions and Fellowship expectations can be found at
