The Local Government Management Fellowship (LGMF) is a career-development opportunity designed to attract recent MPA/MPP (or related programs) graduates to be placed in full-time management-track local government positions. Joining the LGMF program grants you access to top-quality candidates from schools nationwide as a host and unique exposure to local government as a fellow. Prior to interviewing and hiring a fellow, host organizations develop work plans as blueprints for projects and assignments that fellows will complete during their fellowships.
