The Bush Foundation is excited about and committed to supporting and developing more leaders who are better equipped and better networked to effectively lead change. These leaders think bigger and think differently about what is possible in their communities.  A Bush Fellowship is both a recognition of extraordinary achievement and a bet on extraordinary potential. The Fellowship provides individuals with opportunities to demonstrate and improve their capacity for leadership as they learn by doing. The work of the Fellowship is to blend opportunities for personal development with efforts to effectively engage with others to create positive change within their communities. Bush Fellows possess a vision for strengthening the common good within a region and are devoted to making that vision a reality. We seek leaders who have a demonstrated success record, an outstanding character and an active-learner mentality, who could benefit from intensive development through self-designed or academic programs.
 Applications for the 2015 Bush Fellowship Program are accepted July 29 through September 11 at noon Central.
 The Leadership Team welcomes your questions about the Bush Fellowship Program. For more information, please contact us at 651-379-2249 or Fellowships@BushFoundation.org.
