COLORADO GOVERNORS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
**Applications are due by Wednesday, April 3, 2019
Colorado Governors Fellows are private and nonprofit sector executives who seek engagement in public service and tools to make a difference by applying their skills and experiences across sectors. Fellows will graduate with new knowledge, relationships and influence within the public sector, and an alumni network of highly influential civic leaders who can make tangible impacts on the future of our state as highly-engaged executives, future senior-level government leaders or Governor-appointed committee members.
Fellowship candidates are mid-career and high-level executives who exhibit initiative, ambition and curiosity—and, above all, professional success and leadership. Our highly selective determination process seeks those who want to bring their best ideas to Colorado, affect change and make an enduring difference. All nominations are subject to final approval from the Governor.
FELLOWSHIP CANDIDATES MUST:
Be a mid- to high-level executive in the private or nonprofit sector (local government is acceptable)
Demonstrate professional renown
Be actively engaged in the community through volunteerism and/or board membership
Hold peer commendations and endorsements
Be 35+ years old
Be interested in applying your leadership skills in government, public sector initiatives and community engagement
Please complete the Application form below
As a highly selective program, candidates must be willing to commit to the full 9-month program including lunches with the Governor, shadow sessions with senior administration officials, and the Civic Intensathon capstone. The program includes a kick-off retreat in August 2019.
Please note that excessive absence from the Program not only diminishes your experience but also prevents other interested candidates from participating. Fellows who miss more than one all-day session, the Inauguration event and/or the Civic Intensathon are not eligible for their graduation certificate from the Program.
