Robertson Fellows

With partner schools in five states across the country, the Robertson Foundation for Government has built a strong network of supporters in academia. Like our goals, however, our network extends beyond the scholastic world. We have partners in the military, various governmental agencies, think tanks, non-profits, and the private sector. Our relationships with these institutions and individuals help Robertson Fellows in their job searches and networking pursuits.

The Robertson Fellows come from diverse backgrounds, but join in their commitment to serve their country after receiving their graduate degrees. Each Fellow agrees to work for the Federal Government for three of their first seven years after graduating. RFFG rewards this commitment by financing Fellows’ graduate tuition, room, board, and fees. In addition, the Foundation helps Fellows find internships and jobs, and holds regular networking and informational events.
