Fellowship Program

Thank you for your interest in the Colorado Department of State Fellowship Program. We are no longer accepting fellowship applications for this summer. If you have already applied, you will be contacted about the status of the summer program via email. In response to COVID-19, the Secretary of State’s Office has altered some of its operations (including the summer program) in an effort to protect the public and our employees.

What is the Fellowship Program?

The Fellowship Program provides current and recently graduated college students with unique learning opportunities in a dynamic and forward-thinking environment. These Fellowships provide students with the chance to apply their educational knowledge to real-world experiences while working at the Colorado Department of State.

What does the program offer me?

The Fellowship Program provides:

  • Work experience that allows students to test their knowledge, skills and abilities by applying what they learn in the classroom in a professional setting.
  • Unique opportunities to work closely with public sector leaders who will provide mentoring and valuable feedback.
  • Hands-on, professional experience with the goal of making a difference in providing services to the public.
  • A challenging and rewarding work environment.

Can I have a flexible schedule?

We offer flexible hours to accommodate your needs.
