Hatfield Resident Fellows Program

The goal of the recently launched Hatfield Resident Fellows Program is to inspire and support the most talented people to contribute their talents and energy to serve, and lead, public and non-profit organizations in Oregon and beyond.

Through the Hatfield Resident Fellows Program, Portland State University’s Center for Public Service actively identifies and recruits exceptional candidates from Portland State University as well as from other outstanding graduate programs in such fields as public and non-profit administration, law, community health, natural resources and environmental studies, urban planning, public policy, applied economics, and business administration. The strategy is to attract exceptionally talented people to become Fellows and apply their public service skills and interests here in Oregon.
