The Bush Fellowship program supports accomplished leaders with extraordinary track records who are ready to take their efforts to the next level and have even greater impact with and across communities.

The program is unstructured and designed for maximum flexibility, which makes it best suited for people who know what they need to grow in their own leadership and what it will take to realize their vision for change in the region.

Up to 24 Bush Fellows are selected each year for a two-year program and receive a grant of $100,000 to fund their leadership plan. Fellowships can last anywhere between 12 and 24 months.
