The Public Service Fellowship

This future-shaping program taps into the strong talent base of highly educated young citizens and captures a national culture of innovation. We believe this is an ideal moment, leveraging a commitment for public and economic reforms as articulated by the Vision 2030 development blueprint. This program is made possible through the invaluable support and partnership of Emerging Public Leaders, our strategic global partner.

With an initial cohort of 50 young Public Service Fellows, Emerging Leaders Foundation and Emerging Public Leaders are in very advanced strategic discussions with the Public Service Commission (PSC) and other government partners for an initial cohort in late 2021.

A key development is revitalizing our context-specific public service training curriculum to focus on Public Service Leadership,


Ethical Competencies and Citizen Centrism.  Other components of this program will be mentorship, community service and ongoing career advancement opportunities.

The Public Service Fellowship aspires to contribute to a strengthened public service at the national and County level by recruiting young, exceptional talent in the civil service to improve public service delivery, manage government resources ethically and transparently, and building a cadre of professionals.

The Kenya program is envisioned to serve as a regional model for similar partnerships with the governments in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and regional intergovernmental organizations like the East African Community (EAC), Common Market for Eastern, and Southern Africa (COMESA).
