Accepting Applications: Humphrey School of Public Affairs Policy Fellows

I was a Humphrey School of Public Affairs 2006-2007 Policy Fellow and greatly enjoyed the program that year, but more importantly, have been highly appreciative of the network and resources after the fact. It's that time of year again to recruit a cross-sector group of Minnesota leaders to further develop their leadership skills and strengthen their networks, and perhaps you should be a member of that cohort! The program offers generous scholarships as needed, especially to folks in the nonprofit government sectors, for whom there is a designated scholarship fund. You can find other FAQs on the program website, including the application deadline of June 1!

Applications are now being accepted for the 2012-2013 Policy Fellows program at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

Now in its 22nd year, the Policy Fellows program brings together rising 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, 2012 for the nine-month program beginning in September.
