Reilly Fellowship

Rosalie Reilly was one of Maryland's most extraordinary and exemplary public servants who was a role model for young women entering politics and was a champion for educating young leaders as they prepared to enter public life.
This $2,500 fellowship was created to honor the memory of Ms. Reilly by enabling female students to carry on her legacy of public service and leadership.
Eligible candidates must:
• be available to serve at least 135 fellowship hours while enrolled at the University
• have an interest in public service, government involvement, or political leadership
• be a female undergraduate or graduate student
• not be graduating before Fall 2018
• have a 3.0 GPA or higher

The service work you do for the fellowship will be up to you, subject to department approval.  Past recipients have often fulfilled their fellowship service requirement through an internship with a non-profit or in government.  You may also opt to fulfill this requirement through an independent, civically oriented service project of your own design.  You do not need to have your fellowship service commitment settled in order to apply for and win the fellowship.

Fellowship applications are due by Friday, April 20th, 2018.  Finalists will be notified shortly thereafter and may interview with the School of Public Policy Fellowship Committee.
