St. Louis Urban Fellows Program

Mason Herleth and Jacob Metz

The St. Louis Urban Fellows Program is a signature initiative of the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement that supports recent college graduates with a passion for public service. Mason Herleth, ’17, and Jacob Metz, ’17, were selected as the 2017-2018 Urban Fellows in May. They are working full-time in St. Louis City Hall on substantive initiatives that advance city and regional priorities. During their fellowship, they will also receive professional development, mentorship, and access to a network of civic leaders in a broad range of sectors.

The Urban Fellows Program is a partnership of Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis City Hall, and Arch Grants. The inaugural year was supported through seed funding from the Equifax Foundation, and the 2017-2018 Urban Fellows are funded through the generosity of Bruce and Karen Levenson.
