The Bush Foundation Fellowship is intended to help fellows strengthen and develop their leadership. Up to 24 Bush Fellows are selected each year. Selection critera is based on the combination of an extraordinary track record of success, a Fellowship plan that reflects the ability to dream big about what is possible and the skills and potential to bring the plan to life.

Applicants to the Bush Fellowship Program:

  • Must be at least 24 years old at the time of the application deadline.
  • Must have lived for one continuous year immediately prior to the application deadline in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, or one of the 23 Native nations that shares the same geographic area with these states.
