Urban Leaders Fellowship
The Urban Leaders Fellowship is a paid summer fellowship for early- to mid-career professionals who are already leaders in their own right and are looking to accelerate their leadership through a seven-week fellowship with a focus on policy and practice. In nine premier cities across the country, fellows work in partnership with other ambitious, mission-driven individuals, organizations, and elected officials with the aim of empowering fellows to bring about real and lasting change in the community in which they work.
Fellows partner with an elected official, spending half their time on a critical policy project. These leaders have a vision for how their city can improve, and you'll work alongside them to make that vision a reality.
In order to impact real and lasting change, smart policy is not enough. Thus, fellows spend the other half of their time working with an innovative partner organization, from non-profits to tech startups, committed to social justice & community impact.
We exist to develop and shape the future leaders of our nation. Throughout the fellowship, we will work with you to identify the right career path, connect you with leaders in the field, and provide leadership and career coaching.

Things to consider when applying: We have THREE distinct admissions windows. The round by which you submit your application will determine when you hear from us. We encourage you to apply when you are ready, but earlier applicants tend to have a higher likelihood of being accepted to their first choice region.
