Presidio Institute Fellows Program

​We envision a country where individuals of all backgrounds and experiences work together to solve seemingly intractable social, economic, and environmental problems.​

The Presidio Institute Fellows Program

The Presidio Institute Fellows program is the signature leadership education initiative designed for mid- and late-career professionals working across the nation in business, non-profits, philanthropy, academia, and government.  Fellows bring a diversity of expertise and experiences; a desire to learn and contribute, and a passion for solving complex problems by applying learning to projects in their communities, throughout the nation, and across the world.  The program helps Fellows build their practice of leadership in a number of ways, including:

  • Three, 5-day, in-person learning experiences in San Francisco, Washington, DC, and New York.
  • Online cross sector leadership courses delivered through the Presidio Institute Leaderosity platform;
  • Coaching calls, with a certified coach, focused on their personal growth, success in the Fellows program, and success in their cross sector work;
  • A unique, and growing cross sector problem solving network of Fellows, alumni, faculty, and guest speakers.

The program's goals are that the Fellows:

  • Grow in their individual leadership development; valuing, understanding, and application of cross sector leadership skills; and in their familiarity and understanding of the practice and models of cross sector collaboration
  • Apply what they are learning to advance the work of their cross sector project
  • Believe that all the programming is designed and delivered in a clear, logical, and engaging way
  • Develop strong, supportive, and candid relationship with each other and with guest speakers, and faculty.

Applications for the 2017 Presidio Institute Fellows cohort are now closed. Applications for the​ 2018 Presidio Institute Fellows cohort will open in Spring 2017.
