Apply Now for Humphrey Policy Fellows Program

Applications are now available for the 2015-2016 Policy Fellows program, a leadership program for emerging and mid-career professionals based at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. Connect with a cohort of 35 people across the work and political spectrum.

The Policy Fellows meet once per month between September and June to explore fundamental aspects of leadership, and travel to Washington, D.C., to meet 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 for the program beginning in September. Scholarships are available; those specifically for nonprofit sector participants are made possible by gifts from the George Family Foundation and the Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota.

Applicants from Greater Minnesota are encouraged to apply, and are eligible for lodging assistance. For more information, contact the Policy Fellow program at or (612) 625-8330.
