How Do I Apply?

Applying is simple! To apply, complete the application form and include a letter no more than two pages in length, responding to the following questions:
  • Why do you want to participate?
  • How do you hope you and your work will benefit from the program?
Our goal in reviewing applications is to put together a strong cohort of participants who will complement each other and benefit from the work we will do together. We don’t need your resume or list of accomplishments – we’re interested in why you’re coming to the program and what you will do with it.
The deadline to apply is November 1, 2017. Please submit your application to:
Postal address:
James P. Shannon Leadership Institute
