Deadline: 2015-01-23 (National)
The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs is a full-time, nine month, graduate-level experiential leadership training program that prepares diverse, talented and committed individuals for effective and ethical leadership in the public affairs arena. Unconventional by traditional academic standards, the Fellows Program is rigorous and demanding, an unparalleled opportunity for personal and professional growth. The Fellows Program is offered in Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and St. Louis.
Coro introduces program participants to all aspects of the public affairs arena, preparing them to translate their ideals into action for improving their own communities and beyond. Coro Fellows learn to see the big picture - the community as a whole - and appreciate the varying perspectives that characterize our cities, states, and nation. Through field placements, group interviews, seminars, focus weeks, individual and group projects, they develop:
* hands-on project experience
* an understanding of complex public issues
* leadership skills in inquiry, problem-solving,
communication, organization analysis, and consensus-
* political acumen to get things done
* professional growth and personal transformation.
* extensive personal and professional networks
64 Fellows are chosen nationally each year through a highly competitive selection process, including a day-long assessment at each centerís city. The Fellows represent a broad range of academic, work, cultural, racial and economic backgrounds, ages and interests. What they share is an unwavering commitment to civic engagement. Recent participants have ranged from 21 to 53 years of age.
Tuition waivers and payment schedules vary between Coro centers. Nationally, there is tuition between $3,500 and $5,000, of which a partial deposit is due upon acceptance into the program. Need-based stipends are available at all Coro centers. A living stipend is provided.
