2021-2022 Application

National Hometown Fellowship (Applicant-Led)

The 2021-2022 Lead For America application is now OPEN and LFA is excited to launch this year's application cycle with an invitation to apply to our National Hometown Fellowship (Applicant-Led). This is an opportunity for candidates to create their own fellowship, working with support from our team to craft a project scope that fits your passions and secure a host organization in your community. 

Pre-Confirmed Fellowships (Host-Led)

If the National Hometown Fellowship (Applicant-Led) is not something you are interested in, please know our Pre-Confirmed Fellowship (host-led) application will open up on January 14th. Pre-confirmed placements are fellowship opportunities in specific locations across the country where a host organization and Lead For America have already created a specific project scope for that placement.
