Washington, DC - The Corporation for National and Community Service is
seeking applications from former AmeriCorps members who are interested in
serving as the 2009-2010 Eli Segal Fellow, a year-long leadership
opportunity to help advance national service policy, operations, and
strategy from the Office of the CEO at Corporation headquarters. 

This prestigious fellowship was created in 2006 to honor the legacy of Eli
Segal, who was a key architect of the 1993 national service legislation and
served as the first CEO of the Corporation from 1993 to 1995. Segal died in
February 2006.

The fellowship is open to AmeriCorps alumni who have demonstrated
exceptional leadership, drive, and commitment to national service, and who
are committed to advancing the mission and goals of the Corporation. The
duties of the selected fellow will include helping to advance the mission of
national service and the strategic goals of the Corporation while working
closely with the CEO on projects that benefit the national service field. 

The 2009-2010 fellow will serve at moment of strong momentum for the
Corporation and the larger service and volunteering movement. President
Obama has made service a central cause of the Presidency and has called on
all Americans to make service a part of their daily lives. The President's
strong focus has resulted in several early achievements, including record
turnout on the Martin Luther King Day of Service, Recovery Act funding to
support 13,000 new AmeriCorps members, passage of the landmark Edward M.
Kennedy Serve America Act, and the launch of the United We Serve initiative.

The fellowship offers the opportunity for career development and gaining a
first-hand understanding of national service and the workings of a Federal
agency. The fellowship will last for a term of not more than 13 months
beginning in September 2009 and includes a $27,000 salary, plus benefits. 

Eligible applicants for the fellowship include all AmeriCorps alums who
served full-time in the past three years. Exceptions to the three-year limit
may be made for candidates who have been in school full-time since serving
in AmeriCorps, or who have been in military or other national service such
as the Peace Corps. The Segal family will be represented in the selection

The deadline to apply for the Eli Segal Fellowship is July 31. For further
