Now in its 21st year, the Policy Fellows program brings together emerging leaders from business, government, and nonprofit sectors to hone their leadership skills, build their professional networks, and learn how to tackle the "common good" challenges facing our state and nation. As part of a 35-person cohort, Fellows meet monthly between September and June for full-day workshops and seminars; design and implement group projects on topics of their choosing; and participate in a three-day study trip to Washington, D.C.
Emerging and mid-career leaders throughout the state of Minnesota are welcome to apply. The application and two recommendation letters are due June 1, 2011 for the nine-month program beginning in September.

Accepting Applications: 2011-2012 Humphrey Policy Fellows
Hat tip to Leah Lundquist for passing on word that applications are now being accepted for the 2011-2012 Policy Fellows program at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. A 2006-2007 Humphrey Policy Fellow, I highly recommend the program as an opportunity to further develop your leadership skills, engage on critical political and societal issues with policymakers and community leaders, and create friendships across sectors and the state that can expand your horizons and that may be your some of your best relationships yet!
