Bart Peterson, a former two-term mayor for the City of Indianapolis, has established the Peterson Fellows program at the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI. The program will provide an immersive, one year paid internship for a SPEA IUPUI graduate student who has a career interest in public service.
Fellowship recipients will work in partnership with the City of Indianapolis’ Mayor Office on select projects that will address specific challenges in the city, while also supporting the mayor’s strategic plan and vision. Peterson Fellows will also have the opportunity to work in other city departments, broadening their exposure to a wide variety of city leaders and service organizations. (more…)
