NYU Wagner Fellowship

Please help us identify emergy leades for an NYU Wagner fellowship!

NYU Wagner’s Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service is now accepting applications from early-career public service professionals for the 2014 Class. From November 2013 through May 2014, a diverse group of recent college graduates will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership knowledge and skills, deepen their understanding of the public service landscape, hear from top leaders in the field, receive ongoing mentorship, engage in strategic career planning, and build a cross-sector network. Applicants must work full-time in public service in NYC, and most will not have attended graduate school yet. The program is sponsored by NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action, and the program fee is $500. Applications are due by noon EST on September 5, 2013. More information is at wagner.nyu.edu/felps.
