Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 Policy Fellows program at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Now in its 23rd year, the program brings together mid-career Minnesota leaders from government, nonprofit, and business sectors for a nine-month professional development experience. Fellows join a 35-person cohort to focus on enhancing leadership skills, understanding their role in public policy, and developing a diverse personal and professional network. Applications are due May 31, 2013 for the program beginning in September. More information at http://www.hhh.umn.edu/centers/cspg/initiatives/policy_fellows/index.html
Candidates from Greater Minnesota are encouraged to apply. Fellows who come from outside the Twin Cities metro area may apply for lodging assistance.
All Fellows are eligible for scholarship assistance. Scholarships specifically for nonprofit sector participants are made possible by generous gifts from the George Family Foundation and the Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota.
