The purpose of the Timothy J. Penny State Public Service Fellowship is to provide Minnesota State students with the financial opportunity to grow as public servants through participation in state or local government internships. Two state fellowships and two federal fellowships will be given out to students for legislative internships or an internship in Minnesota at a state agency. Applicants must be enrolled at a Minnesota State college or university for at least one semester prior to application, have a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale and plan to take an internship in state or federal public service within one calendar year.
Led by Minnesota State University students, we are the inclusive voice for all future, current, and former students. We actively work to represent and support Minnesota State University students and advocate at a local, system, state, and federal level for higher education policies that make a positive impact for our students and communities. Our vision is to create the model of inclusive higher education policies and leadership. Our goal is to ensure higher education is rooted in student voices and student needs.
