THE STORY:

The Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs is a nine-month, full-time, graduate-level leadership training program. This unique program is rigorous and demanding, preparing diverse, talented, and committed individuals to bring about change in the Greater Pittsburgh region. Using the city as a classroom, Fellows learn through interactions with private, public, and nonprofit decision-makers and work as a group to develop critical thinking, analytical, governance, and leadership skills. The Coro Center for Civic Leadership (Pittsburgh) selects 12 Fellows annually from a highly-competitive appplicant pool.

In order to secure the best Fellows, regardless of their finances, Coro Pittsburgh has eliminated tuition from the program. Coro Pittsburgh is the only Coro center that offers the program tuition-free and with need-blind stipends for every Fellow. To support this commitment to the 2015 - 2016 cohort of Fellows in Public Affairs, we ask that you donate to the Coro Fellows Scholarship Fund. Coro's initial fundraising goal is $24,000, which will be used to support tuition, stipends, projects, and State and National Affairs Week trips.

Each Fellow will act as the leader of their own fundraising team (see below) as part of their commitment to the Fellowship in Public Affairs. You can learn more about each individual Fellow on their pages.

The 2015 - 2016 cohort includes 6 men and 6 women, represent 12 colleges & universities (and 1 law school), have views across the political spectrum, are from 9 states and two countries, and range in age from 22 to 32.
