The Bush Foundation in St. Paul, Minnesota, has selected twenty-four leaders from the region as its 2016 Bush Fellows.
Established in 1965, the Bush Fellowship Program aims to develop leadership capacity in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the twenty-three Native nations that share the same geography by investing in the development of individuals with records of achievement and extraordinary potential to make significant contributions. Fellows receive up to $100,000 over twelve to twenty-four months to pursue learning experiences that will help them develop leadership skills and attributes. Fellows can use the funds to advance their education, take advantage of networking opportunities, and/or access leadership resources, workshops, and trainings.
"We are thrilled to support this class of fellows as they pursue the knowledge, connections, and experiences that will help them be more effective leaders," said Bush Foundation president Jennifer Ford Reedy.
