Fellowship programs are at the heart of Harvard Kennedy School’s mission to forge leaders capable of solving the world’s most pressing problems across the sectors of business, government, and civil society and have become a beacon for the school. Working with Dean Ellwood and Harvard University President Drew Faust, the Center for Public Leadership helped to create and is now "home" to six fellowship programs:
2013-2014 CPL Fellow Profiles
Our approach at the Center is to attract the most talented members of the next generation, knit bonds of friendship among them, provide them a transformative educational experience, and send them charging forth with skills, drive, and a clear sense of their moral compass.
The Center welcomes 52 Fellows through its five fellowship programs in the 2013-2014 academic year; all told, these Fellowships have more than 550 alumni. What distinguishes these programs from most others at the School is that they are intentionally patterned after the White House Fellowship program that John Gardner began years ago: the fellows come together regularly for programming including dinners, speakers, retreats, and field experiences, to enrich their academic experience and to build lasting ties that can become a powerful force for change. As a former Fellow put it, the close-knit group became "the trustees of my dreams."
