Bloomberg Harvard City Hall Fellowships

  About the Fellowship

We welcome 2024 graduates of Harvard master’s or professional degree programs to consider applying for this exciting opportunity. Applications will open in fall 2023.

Successful applicants will be placed in paid, two-year fellowships in municipal leadership in city halls across the United States and tasked with supporting cities in developing and deepening capabilities to address pressing municipal challenges.‍

The fellowship provides a salary and benefits plus robust professional development and cohort learning through the two years, including in-person convenings and numerous opportunities to interact with and learn from peers, Bloomberg Harvard staff, and faculty.‍
