The UD Local Government Management Fellows (LGMF) Program is designed to attract and develop talented emerging professionals in local government. The program allows selected UD 4+1, Master of Public Policy (MPP), or Master of Public Administration (MPA) students to translate a passion for public service into practice through work placements with city and town managers in Delaware.
Recruitment for summer LGMFs begins in February. Candidates should be interested in a career in local government, members of the UD ICMA Student Chapter, and able to commute to, or live near, the host local government for a 10-week period in the summer. Fellows will receive a paid stipend from the municipality, which is administered by IPA.
