The Veterans Local Government Management Fellowship is a 16 to 20-week Department of Defense Military Installation approved Career Skills Program that provides transitioning service members with management training and hands-on experience in the local government environment with the goal of preparing them for smooth transitions into local government careers. This program will match eligible and selected fellows with surrounding local government sponsors based on skills, education, experience, and the preferences of both parties.

The local governments of Pueblo West, Fountain, Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, Aurora, Jefferson County, El Paso County, and Pueblo County, Colorado, and Overland Park, Kansas, will sponsor fellows for Cohort 18-02. Apply online by 15 December 2017 at NEOGOV. Cohort 18-01 will be conducted between 08 January –  27 April 2018.
