The Coro Fellowship is one of the nation’s most prestigious public affairs programs for aspiring leaders who wish to create change across sectors and across differences and contribute meaningfully to the public good . Competitively selected applicants will join a cohort of 12 fellows for the nine-month program in a high-impact urban US city: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, or New York. Using the city as a classroom, Fellows learn through interactions with various stakeholders, numerous work placements and leadership development seminars to develop critical thinking, analytical, governance and leadership skills.
Coro seeks bright, self-motivated individuals with a demonstrated commitment to ethical, effective leadership and civic engagement. A bachelor's degree or equivalent is required, and post-graduate academic study or work experience is preferred, though not required. We encourage applications from candidates of all academic disciplines, careers, and racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. Applications for the 2021 cohort are due January 8, 2020.
Fellowship components include:
- Field Placements across various sectors, including for-profit, non-profit/philanthropy, government/politics, and labor.
- Focus Weeks that allow Fellows to deeply investigate a specific issue, industry, or geography of interest. Past Focus Weeks have centered on media, agriculture, state government, public finance, and organized labor.
- Leadership Interviews with senior leaders from various sectors and industries to learn the art of inquiry and understand high-level decision making.
- Group Seminars where Fellows are trained on Coro’s tools for clear and effective thinking, collective debriefing, and best practices for how we can work together to solve common problems.
