The Fellows Program is a unique leader-development program that focuses on refining the skill level and heightening the self-awareness of leaders within public horticulture.
It is designed similarly to the highest-quality leader development programs available today with 27% of the focus spent on text and case-based discussions, 22% spent on learning from regional and global public horticulture leaders, and 51% spent on pragmatic experiences gained via departmental immersion, a two-month field placement, and a collective cohort project.
The Program is guided by the legacy of visionary business leader Pierre S. du Pont and is grounded in the literature of experts within the disciplines of leadership, organizational behavior, and nonprofit management.
Nominations are open throughout the year for the upcoming cohort. Applications for the 2023-2024 cohort will be open June 1 through July 31, 2023.
