Now Accepting Applications for the ACCE Fellowship for Education Attainment!

Published Monday, May 2, 2016 5:00 am

This week ACCE announced a call for applications for the 2016-17 cohort for the ACCE Fellowship for Education Attainment. Chamber executives and senior staff who are engaged in improving the cradle-to-career education pipeline in their communities are encouraged to apply for one of the seats in the fellowship program.

Applicants must complete the EAD Self-Assessment* of their community's educational strengths and opportunities for improvement, as well as the fellowship application by May 20. Chosen Fellows will be announced by early July.

During three in-person fellowship sessions**, selected executives will engage in an education and workforce development deep dive involving best practices in education attainment, case studies of successes and challenges, interaction with national experts and building a strong peer-to-peer network. Throughout, Fellows will develop and execute plans for specific educational attainment objectives.

For more information contact Michelle Vegliante at 703-998-3536.

 

* If your chamber has already completed the Self-Assessment, we have it on file. If you are unsure, contact Michelle Vegliante.

** Session 1: September 13-14, 2016 - Alexandria, VA; Session 2: January 10-11, 2017 - Los Angeles, CA; Session 3: April 4-5, 2017 – location TBD

 Additional information: Applicants chosen will be required to pay a $1,000 fully-refundable or charitable deposit. Deposit will be refunded to each participant's chamber at the end of the Fellowship only if the Fellow attends all three sessions AND completes the program requirements. Deposits that are not refunded will be donated to the Community Growth Educational Foundation (CGEF). All Fellows will be given the option to donate their deposit to CGEF at the conclusion of the program.
