San Francisco Fellows Program
Fiscal Year 2021-2022
Developing the Next Generation of Public Service Leaders
The mission of the San Francisco Fellows program is to foster community stewardship by preparing recent college graduates for roles in public service and administration.
The Fellows program is a unique opportunity to work and learn about public administration in local government while working full time as a City employee. Fellows work on various programs and projects that have a direct impact on City operations which spans a broad range of City functions and departments, involving analysis, planning, and program development.
In addition to gaining valuable full-time professional work experience and skills such as leadership, communication, technical skills and other professional development, the cohort experience includes weekly learning sessions built into the Fellows' work schedule to provide a well-rounded, thorough introduction to San Francisco government operations, policies and strategies.
Competitively selected applicants will join a cohort of up to 18 Fellows for an 11.5-month full-time work experience as City employees. Fellows will earn an annualized salary of approximately $60,000, plus health, dental, retirement and other benefits.
We invite people who have had an undergraduate degree conferred within the past 5 years to apply for this highly selective program. Specific areas of study are not required. We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, hard-working individuals who are interested in experiencing public administration in service of the City and County of San Francisco.

How To Apply
As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:
- Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
- Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.
Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.
If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
