The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of our Call for Applications to the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program. Inviting bright young change-makers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors from Canada and around the world to participate in a remarkable leadership experience.
The Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program represents the beginning of a lifelong personal and professional development journey, as well as an opportunity to join a global community of public leaders.
For the 2017-19 Program, a new cohort of Public Leadership Fellows will collectively explore how focusing on strategies of inclusion can help public leaders respond to the complex challenges facing culturally diverse societies.
The two-year program begins with a full-time residential experience in Montreal with a dozen select Public Leadership Fellows. This is followed by a field phase, in which Fellows return to their respective communities and countries in order to apply the skills and new ideas developed during the residential phase. Fellows benefit from intensive leadership development training and support during the residential year and some ongoing support from one another and the Foundation during the field year. Thereafter, Fellows are encouraged to remain active members of an emerging community of Jeanne Sauvé public leaders who hail from over 50 countries around the world.
The theme of the 2017-19 Public Leadership Program is Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative.
To be eligible to apply, you must:
- Be between 25 and 30 years of age (inclusive)
- Have completed at least one university degree
- Possess high oral and written proficiency in English (French language skills are an asset)
- Have at least 3 years of full-time professional experience
- Have a strong record of leadership benefitting a particular community or cause in the public interest
The Jeanne Sauvé Fellows are provided with a fellowship. They are also given accommodation in the Sauvé House at no cost. The Foundation reimburses all reasonable* visa/permit and economy fare travel costs incurred by participants in the course of their visa/permit applications. *Expenses above $150 must be approved in advance by the Foundation. The Foundation also covers the costs of economy travel to and from Montreal at the start and end of the residential program (exact dates to be approved in advance by the Foundation).
