LeadingAge seeks inclusive participation within the field of aging services, representative of its diverse workforce. Any individual who works for a LeadingAge provider member organization is eligible to apply, irrespective of professional experience, type or level of position. It is far more important for an applicant to demonstrate deep leadership potential within their organization than it is for them to have a specific job title or tenure in the field. In addition, we strive for an exceptionally diverse cohort of fellows with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, including but not limited to age, gender, race, ethnic, religious and geographic diversity. This focus on diversity creates a richer learning experience throughout the program year, helping to fuel leadership development and personal growth.
A non-refundable fee of $5,500 is required upon selection. Participants are responsible for their own hotel and travel costs/arrangements. Limited tuition assistance is available for financial hardship situations.
A committee of LeadingAge members and association staff will evaluate applications using the following criteria:
2016 applications are now closed. Applications for 2017 will open in March of 2016.
