The mission of the David Bohnett Leaders Fellowship is to develop a strong cohort of LGBTQ public officials. LGBTQ Victory Institute, in collaboration with The David Bohnett Foundation, has sent over 150 outstanding LGBTQ leaders to the Harvard Kennedy School’s Senior Executives in State and Local Government program since 2002, and connects these alumni to opportunities for further leadership development.
About the Program
Designed for all senior-level executives working with state and local governments — including government officials and elected officeholders — this intensive, three-week Executive Education program at the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, hones skills and furthers the leadership potential of accomplished individuals from across the United States. Sessions are held in June and July.
The Bohnett Fellowship provides partial financial assistance to help strong LGBTQ officials cover the costs of attendance, programming that complements the Senior Executives program and a growing network of Bohnett Fellowship alumni.
Apply to the Bohnett Fellowship
To apply for the Bohnett Fellowship, you must apply to both the Harvard Kennedy School and the Victory Institute.
Applicants can choose between two identical sessions of the Senior Executives program: June or July. Programming for Bohnett fellows starts the day before the session begins.
Victory is accepting applications for 2022. Dates for the 2022 program will be updated in the coming weeks.
LGBTQ Victory Institute would like to give special thanks to our program supporters. Their philanthropy ensures that this program has the financial resources it needs to our Bohnett Fellows.
