Application Instructions

Applications for the 2012-2013 have now closed.
Please check the International Leadership Institute pages soon for upcoming event and cohort information! 


All applications must be submitted online via the Confex system. Faxed or e-mailed applications will not be accepted.

Steps for a successful, on-time application!

  1. Identify a Mentor who will support your leadership development and specific project goals.
    • Ideally, this would be someone that you already know, but if no one comes to mind, get your network going and don’t be afraid to ask! Start with your colleagues and see who they recommend.

  2. Request a letter of support from your employer or organization.
    • Reach out before completing the application so this step will not hold you up.

  3. Gather the supporting application materials.
    • Get your materials together and up-to-date, so that completing the application will go more quickly.

      The following materials represent a complete application:
      • GNLA application for the Fellow and the Mentor
      • Résumé or CV for the Fellow and the Mentor
      • Letter of support from agency/organization/institution (A/O/I) for the applicant and the Mentor

  4. Complete and submit online application.
