Our Fellows Program is an intensive and immersive learning experience that provides innovative, pragmatic leadership development opportunities for those who consistently demonstrate high-potential growth and have a strong desire to lead in the public horticulture arena. The Program’s aim is to create leadership scholar-practitioners, and the ideal candidate is someone who has a bachelor’s degree and wants to serve—or is currently serving—in a leadership capacity within the public horticulture industry.

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.

“Since 1967, thousands of students from all over the world have participated in our education programs and have gone on to leadership roles in many of the world’s top horticultural institutions. The Fellows Program carries with it the legacy of its beginnings, with a consciousness of the fast-growing demands on leaders in our industry.”

-Paul B. Redman, President & Chief Executive Officer of Longwood Gardens
