“The longer I live the more I find it necessary to reexamine those things about which I was once most certain.”
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.
More information about program costs and content can be found on our website:
