New York Ag Connection - 03/13/2019

New York Secretary of State Rossana Rosado reminded New Yorkers that applications for the 2019-2021 Empire State Fellows class are open until April 1.

The Empire State Fellows Program is a full-time leadership training program that prepares the next generation of talented professionals for careers as New York State policymakers. The incoming class of Empire State Fellows will serve from September 2019 to September 2021. At the end of the Fellowship, a performance review process will identify Fellows that will be given the opportunity to continue to serve as leaders in New York State government after completing the program.

New York Secretary of State Rosado said "The Empire State Fellows program has proven to be a successful and beneficial career-building path for dozens of talented individuals. Each class of fellows go on to engage in matters that better New Yorkers' lives. We look forward to meeting the next generation of leaders who will bring fresh ideas and experience to state government."

Engagement in the work of New York State government lies at the heart of the Empire State Fellows Program. Governor Cuomo appoints each Empire Fellow to work directly with a Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, or other high-level policy maker. Each Empire Fellow works at a state office or agency, such as the Office of Children and Family Services, the Department of State, Department of Labor, the Department of Environmental Conservation, or in the Governor's Executive Chamber. Work assignments offer Fellows unparalleled experience collaborating with senior officials and participating in the policy-making process.

While taking part in the work of government, Empire Fellows may participate in educational and professional development programs that help them to serve as effective and ethical government leaders. The educational component of the Empire State Fellows Program begins with a one-week course in September 2019. Educational coursework continues on a semi-monthly basis. Meanwhile, professional development activities and mentoring by Cabinet members and other government leaders, enhances Empire Fellows' collaboration with policy-makers.

Applications for the Empire State Fellows program are due April 1. More information and the application process can be found at
