The Law Enforcement Fund for Executive Education

The Law Enforcement Fund for Executive Education was established through the generosity of an anonymous donor. The fellowship is designed to provide partial tuition funding for individuals from southern California working in law enforcement and related fields to attend a 2018 Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education program.

Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education offers over 30 professional development programs annually—most 10 days or less—that address critical subjects from crisis leadership, decision making, and regulatory affairs to infrastructure and national security. Upon successful completion of a program, you will earn a certificate and join a powerful global network of over 40,000 Harvard Kennedy School alumni.

You are encouraged to apply to any HKS Executive Education program that best fits your current training needs and that runs between April 1 and December 31, 2018. Programs that may be most suitable include:

Senior Executives in State and Local Government
A three-week program designed for state and local government officials and nonprofit leaders who work closely with the government.

Strategic Management of Regulatory and Enforcement Agencies
A one-week program examining the distinctive strategic and managerial challenges that surround government agencies’ regulatory and enforcement functions, focusing on issues of social regulation rather than economic regulation.
