In partnership with its 14 state-based program sites, IEL is now recruiting for the 2014-2015 cohort of the Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP™). EPFP™ prepares high-potential individuals for positions of leadership in education and related fields. The program recruits over 200 Fellows annually and operates in Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachussetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina.
At a time when, there are so many different viewpoints about what it takes to educate our children, experiences like EPFP are essential. The 10-month program provides a forum in which participants (Fellows) broaden their understanding of education issues through cross-sector and cross-boundary learning. The knowledge and understanding of leadership and policy as well as the networks developed during the EPFP experience provide a foundation upon which Fellows help to strengthen the education community and build their careers.
