<strong><em>For People Seeking Better Results for Children and Youth</em></strong></p> <p><strong> APPLICATION</strong></p> <p>We are pleased you are considering the Michigan Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP).</p> <p>EPFP is a ten-month professional development program for individuals whose work record reflects strong leadership abilities and a concern for improving the life chances of children and youth.  Participants in EPFP hold full-time positions in diverse organizations at the local, state and national levels.  Fellows are supported by their employing agencies.</p> <p><strong>THE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM</strong> <br /> Fellows remain in their full-time positions and use their work environment as the context for examining important leadership and policy issues in their states and in the nation.  EPFP activities are directed by on-site Coordinators.<br />   <br /> EPFP brings Fellows and ideas together through a variety of on-site learning opportunities (such as seminars, informal discussions, site visits, skill development workshops, and individual or group projects), through electronic networking and information sharing, and through participation in two national conferences during the Fellowship year that bring together Fellows from all program sites.</p> <p>The first of the national conferences, held in the late fall, is the <strong>Leadership Forum.  </strong>This forum heightens Fellows' understanding of leadership challenges and of themselves as leaders.  The second conference, held in the early spring, is the<strong> Washington Policy Seminar. </strong>This meeting increases Fellows' knowledge of national policy issues and processes and gives them a chance to identify the impact of national policy on their work.</p> <p>Participation in EPFP yields important results.  The program’s complementary work/learning, state/national, actual/virtual activities provide Fellows with a unique personal development laboratory for applying new insights and for practicing new skills.  Fellows are given many opportunities to:<br /> (1) develop a broadened understanding of the policy process;<br /> (2) hone their communications and decision-making skills;<br /> (3) refine their potential for leadership; and<br /> (4) expand their network of professional colleagues.  <br /> As a result, employing agencies are rewarded with better informed and more skillful employees.</p> <p><strong>PROGRAM FEES</strong> <strong>AND EMPLOYER SPONSORSHIP</strong><br /> Each person’s employing agency–the sponsor–pays the base program fee of $2,700, travel costs to the two national meetings, and any special site-specific programming fees.  In addition, the employer provides release time for on-site and national activities. </p> <p><strong>ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS</strong> <br /> EPFP invites your application if you have:</p> <ul> <li>a commitment to personal and professional development on behalf of children and youth</li> <li>a track record for making things happen—inside and across agencies/organizations</li> <li>substantive work experiences</li> <li>a bachelor's degree or its equivalent</li> <li>a full-time professional position</li> <li>the endorsement and financial support of your employing organization</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p>EPFP requires participation in on-site training activities which are generally, but not always, held at the conclusion of the normal work day.  In addition, Fellows are expected to attend the two national conferences.  Please consider these extra demands on your time in light of your current professional and personal schedule.  If you cannot participate fully in EPFP, please do not complete the application.</p> <p><strong>APPLICATION AND SELECTION

late fall, is the <strong>Leadership Forum.  </strong>This forum heightens Fellows' understanding of leadership challenges and of themselves as leaders.  The second conference, held in the early spring, is the<strong> Washington Policy Seminar. </strong>This meeting increases Fellows' knowledge of national policy issues and processes and gives them a chance to identify the impact of national policy on their work.</p> <p>Participation in EPFP yields important results.  The program’s complementary work/learning, state/national, actual/virtual activities provide Fellows with a unique personal development laboratory for applying new insights and for practicing new skills.  Fellows are given many opportunities to:<br /> (1) develop a broadened understanding of the policy process;<br /> (2) hone their communications and decision-making skills;<br /> (3) refine their potential for leadership; and<br /> (4) expand their network of professional colleagues.  <br /> As a result, employing agencies are rewarded with better informed and more skillful employees.</p> <p><strong>PROGRAM FEES</strong> <strong>AND EMPLOYER SPONSORSHIP</strong><br /> Each person’s employing agency–the sponsor–pays the base program fee of $2,700, travel costs to the two national meetings, and any special site-specific programming fees.  In addition, the employer provides release time for on-site and national activities. </p> <p><strong>ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS</strong> <br /> EPFP invites your application if you have:</p> <ul> <li>a commitment to personal and professional development on behalf of children and youth</li> <li>a track record for making things happen—inside and across agencies/organizations</li> <li>substantive work experiences</li> <li>a bachelor's degree or its equivalent</li> <li>a full-time professional position</li> <li>the endorsement and financial support of your employing organization</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p>EPFP requires participation in on-site training activities which are generally, but not always, held at the conclusion of the normal work day.  In addition, Fellows are expected to attend the two national conferences.  Please consider these extra demands on your time in light of your current professional and personal schedule.  If you cannot participate fully in EPFP, please do not complete the application.</p>
