California Education Policy Fellowship Program - Applications Due May 15

The California Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) builds education policy making capacity in California for K-12 and higher education. The program creates cohorts of education policy leaders from a range of roles across the state who are well-versed in key issues affecting student success and who have the relationships needed to work together across systems.

Each year, California EPFP enrolls a new cohort of about 20 mid-career education professionals, called Fellows, drawn from K-12 and higher education, executive and legislative branches of California government, and education related non-profit organizations. Fellows learn to approach and analyze issues and challenges from different perspectives.

California EPFP Fellows pay a program fee of $875, as well as any travel-related costs to attend the national policy seminar in Washington, DC. CPT 2 will not be covering the cost of participation.  Full or partial scholarships to cover the program fee are available based on the ability of a Fellow’s organization to pay. The majority of program costs for California EPFP are covered by generous contributions from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
