The John Gardner Public Service 2024-2025 Class of Fellows

The John Gardner Public Service Fellowship is proud to announce its 2024-2025 Class of Fellows

24-25 Gardner Fellows

Tatiana Butte (Geography): Environmental Justice
Chan Venh Lam (Political Science): Affordable Housing for Formerly Incarcerated Students
Ariana Kretz (History, Minors in Conservation and Resource Studies and Public Policy):

The Gardner Fellowship program selects three Fellows from the graduating classes at UC
Berkeley and provides each a $52,000 stipend to work in the governmental or nonprofit
organization that matches their public service interests for ten months. Past fellows have been
placed at such organizations as the ACLU, the State Department, and Governor Newsom's
office. During their Fellowships, fellows are paired with senior-level mentors who guide their
professional growth and development. We are looking forward to finding meaningful
postgraduate public service leadership opportunities for these three Fellows.
The UC Berkeley Gardner Fellowship Program is sponsored by the UC Berkeley Travers Political
Science Department and the Institute of Governmental Studies.
