2014 Bush Foundation Fellowship

The people of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and 23 Tribal Nations are blessed by the continued commitment of the Bush Foundation to making our region a better place by living its mission to "act as a catalyst for the courageous leadership necessary to create sustainable solutions to tough public problems and ensure community vitality".  

Established in 1953 by 3M executive Archibald Bush and his artist wife, Edyth, the Bush Foundation has granted over $1 billion in grants and fellowships to over 3000 people.  Through its Fellowship Program, the Bush Foundation is committed to supporting and developing more leaders who are better equipped and better networked to effectively lead change.

I am honored, humbled, and thrilled beyond belief to have been selected as a 2014 Bush Foundation Fellow and will use this amazing opportunity to pursue graduate work at the University of Minnesota and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.  I look forward to working with others to apply what I learn to making my rural Minnesota community the best that it can be!

The 2015 Bush Fellowship Program will open for applications in September 2014. Think about it!
