National Urban/Rural Fellowship Award

The National Urban Fellows, Inc. has announced that it is currently accepting applications for the National Urban/Rural Fellowship Award, Class of 2001. They seek to recruit exceptionally talented mid-career individuals, from traditionally underrepresented communities, committed to assuming leadership roles in public service. The application deadline is March 3, 2000.

The National Urban/Rural Fellows (NU/RF) is a premier graduate fellowship that offers a unique learning experience: a fourteen month academic program combined with a practical "hands-on" nine month mentorship with a senior public administrator.

The Fellowship is conducted in partnership with Bernard M. Baruch College of the City University of New York. The first Summer Academic session will commence in early June 2000, and is followed by an assignment to a Mentorship site. During the mentorship period Fellows are required to complete additional course work via distance learning and attend a Mid-Year Academic Conference.

At the conclusion of the mentorship assignment, the Fellow returns for a second Summer Academic session in early June 2001. Upon successful completion of all academic and fellowship requirements, the Fellow is awarded a Master of Public Administration.

A highly competitive and intensive full-time program, NU/RF grants fellowships to a select group of 25-35 individuals annually. The candidates must possess:
