Coro Fellows Class of 2022

Sponsored by Coro Northern California

The Coro Fellowship is one of the nation’s most prestigious public affairs programs for aspiring leaders in public affairs. Coro’s mission is to train, support, and connect leaders to foster a thriving democracy and tackle society’s biggest challenges together. 

Competitively selected applicants will join a cohort for the full-time program in a high-impact urban US city: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, or New York. Using the city as a classroom, Fellows learn through interactions with various stakeholders, numerous work placements and leadership development seminars to develop critical thinking, analytical, governance and leadership skills. 

Applications for the 2023-2024 cohort are due January 8, 2023. 

Fellowship components include: 

  • Field Placements across various sectors, including business, government, labor, non-profit, and political campaigns. 
  • Focus Weeks that allow Fellows to deeply investigate a specific issue, industry, or geography of interest. Past Focus Weeks have centered on media, agriculture, state government, public finance, and organized labor. 
  • Leadership Interviews with senior leaders from various sectors and industries; fellows generally meet and interview 100+ influential leaders throughout Northern California.
  • Group Seminars where Fellows are trained on Coro’s tools for clear and effective thinking, collective debriefing, and best practices for how we can work together to solve common problems. 

Who should apply? 

  • Individuals committed to generating positive change in their communities and who see themselves as future leaders. 
  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent is required, and post-graduate academic study or work experience is preferred, though not required. 
  • Competitive applicants are those who can engage in a program that demands stamina, rigorous thinking and analysis, and a deep, self-reflective approach to learning.
