James H. Dunn, Jr. Memorial Fellowship and Vito Marzullo Internship Program


The Dunn Fellowship Program provides bright, highly motivated college graduates a unique opportunity to experience firsthand the operations of state government for one year.


Dunn Fellows are recruited from public and private colleges and universities throughout the nation. Qualified applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree at the program’s commencement and must have demonstrated a commitment to excellence through academic honors, leadership ability, extracurricular activities and community/public service involvement. The program begins in August and ends in July of the following year.


Successful applicants spend one week of August receiving an orientation to state government. After the orientation period, fellows are placed in different positions throughout the Governor’s Office and in various agencies under the Governor’s jurisdiction.


Dunn Fellows are paid $31,332 annually and receive full state benefits.


Vito Marzullo Interns possess the same credentials as Dunn Fellows and enjoy similar benefits and experiences; however, they must be Illinois residents.
