Appointment of the 1992-1993 White House Fellows

June 2, 1992
    The President today announced the appointments of the 1992-93 White 
House fellows. This is the 28th class of fellows since the program was 
established in 1964. Fifteen fellows were chosen from nearly 700 
applicants who were screened by 11 regional panels. The President's 
Commission on White House Fellowships, chaired by Ronna Romney, 
interviewed the 33 national finalists prior to recommending the 15 
persons to the President. Their year of Government service will begin 
September 1, 1992.
    Fellows serve for one year as members of the White House staff or as 
special assistants to members of the Cabinet. In addition to the work 
assignments, the fellowship includes an education program that parallels 
and broadens the unique experience of working at the highest levels of 
the Federal Government. The program is open to U.S. citizens in the 
early stages of their careers and from all occupations and professions. 
Federal Government employees are not eligible, with the exception of 
career Armed Forces personnel. Leadership, character, intellectual and 
professional ability, and commitment to community and national service 
are the principal criteria employed in the selection of fellows.
    Applications for the 1993-94 program may be obtained by contacting 
the President's Commission on White House Fellowships, 712 Jackson
