Appalachian Regional Commission looking for 40 institute fellows
The Appalachian Regional Commission is looking for leaders in the public and private sector to be part of the new Appalachian Leadership Institute.
The inaugural nine-month program, from October 2019 to July 2020, is designed as a leadership and economic development training opportunity for people who live and work in Appalachia, the ARC said.
Forty fellows will participate in an extensive training curriculum developed by the Appalachian Regional Commission in partnership with the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, Tuskegee University and Collective Impact.
The program will include skill-building seminars, best-practice reviews and field visits during six separate sessions across the Appalachian region, followed by a capstone graduation event in Washington, D.C.
Applications are due by June 1. For more information, email: [email protected].
