Description: 

The USGA Fellowship in Leadership and Service is committed to providing opportunities for personal development through golf and its values. This two-year program connects college graduates at the outset of their careers with resources that enable them to grow personally and professionally.

Fellows work in all facets of the USGA Grants Initiative in a challenging environment with a high level of responsibility. The Fellowship also provides an educational component to aid recent college graduates in their professional and personal development. This component focuses on non-profit management, finance, public speaking, writing skills, negotiations, and personal leadership styles. The overall program allows Fellows to learn through experience while examining their professional aspirations and strategies.

Fellows are given a variety of responsibilities that enhance their professional development and assist the USGA. The Fellows' work experience is centered on supporting grant recipients in all phases of their operations. In addition to grant work, Fellows are involved in the operation of many diverse projects and participate in a Professional Development Curriculum that focuses on subjects ranging from finance to non-profit management.
