The Policy Fellows meet once per month between September and June to explore fundamental aspects of leadership, and travel to Washington, D.C. for a multi-day trip with prominent elected officials and national public affairs leaders. Fellows represent business, nonprofit, and public sectors across the state of Minnesota.
Applications are due June 1, 2015 for the program beginning in September.
