A White House Fellow serves as a Special Attache between the White House and an assigned Cabinet Secretary. The program was started nearly 75 years ago to link community leaders, Subject-Matter-Experts, scholars and distinguished professionals with an opportunity to learn and serve as a non-partisan Fellow.
Each year over 2500 nominations are made for candidates to be a White House Fellow.
Of these 50 are appointed Regional White House Fellows.
From these selected, up to15 serve as White House Fellows in the Oval Office for one year.
