Bush Fellowship

The Bush Fellowship is a recognition of extraordinary achievement and a bet on extraordinary potential. The Fellowship provides people with an opportunity to pursue the education and experiences they need to become more effective leaders in their community.  More information: http://www.bushfoundation.org/fellowships/bush-fellowship.  Apply by August 15, 2017. 

Bush Fellows have a record of accomplishment and want to make an even bigger impact in their community. Fellows determine what they need to become a more effective leader and receive a grant of up to $100,000 to make it happen.

The Fellowship is one way the Bush Foundation works to inspire and support creative problem solving – within and across sectors – to make our region better for everyone. Since 1965, Bush Fellowships have been awarded to more than 2,200 people across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography.

The Bush Fellowship provides resources, experiences and time to people with the potential to advance our region.

The Fellowship is awarded annually to as many as 24 people from across the region. Bush Fellows receive a flexible grant of up to $100,000 that they can use over 12 to 24 months to pursue the education and experiences they need to become more effective leaders in their community.

The Fellowship allows people to access programs, mentors and networks that might not otherwise be available to them. The experience allows them to develop an even greater vision for what is possible in their communities—and a deeper commitment to taking action.

Bush Fellows receive a flexible grant of up to $100,000 that can be used over 12 to 24 months to pursue the education and experiences they need to become more effective leaders in their community.

Bush Fellows may use the grant to pursue a self-designed leadership development plan. Fellows may not direct grant funds to another person, organization or project.

They may also use the grant to start or complete a degree-seeking program, anything from an undergraduate degree to a PhD.

Whether a Fellow is pursuing a self-designed leadership plan, or a degree-seeking program, they may use the grant to cover living expenses (including childcare), tuition, fees for workshops and seminars, travel and equipment purchases that are necessary to carry out the Fellowship.

There are some restrictions on the ways certain government and elected officials, and their spouses, may use the Fellowship. Download the Government Official Restrictions PDF for more information.
