Eligibility Requirements and Selection Criteria

  • Applicants must be graduates of a four-year university or college.
  • Applicants should have a Colorado connection (resident, student/graduate from a Colorado college or university, immediate family) and/or an explicit interest in serving the communities of Colorado.
  • Applicants should demonstrate strong leadership capability and potential, the ability to work as a member of a team, and an interest in public service or civic engagement.
  • Applicants must exhibit the highest standards of professionalism and behavior.
  • Applicants must possess strong verbal and writing skills.
  • Applicants must demonstrate personal initiative and determination.
  • Applicants must have the ability to travel throughout the state of Colorado on official Foundation business.

Duration and Compensation

The Fellowship generally lasts two years from the date of entry into the program. An annual class of Fellows will typically begin in mid-July. Specific entry and completion dates are based on Foundation requirements and individual considerations.  Employment with the Foundation is considered to be "at-will." Colorado is an "at-will" state, meaning that employees and employers may voluntarily enter into and cease employment agreements at any time.

Starting annual salary is $30,000. However, post-undergraduate work experience and/or education is considered to determine salary level. Benefits are competitive.

Application Procedure

Applicants must submit the following items:

  • Personal Statement (not to exceed two pages): Describe your interest in the Fellowship and in serving the communities of Colorado. In addition, please cite a specific example from your resume highlighting a lesson you learned about leadership.
  • Resume
  • College transcript(s)
  • No more than two letters of recommendation from a supervisor, professor, or community leader who can speak to your leadership skills, work ethic, and ability to work as a member of a team.

 

Completed applications may be submitted online beginning November 1, 2014.
