Past fellows have been placed at the Human Rights Watch, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center. Fellows are matched with a senior-level mentor during their 10-month fellowship. The goal of the John Gardner Fellowship is to encourage UC Berkeley’s best students to pursue a career in public service.
