A Bush Fellowship is recognition of extraordinary achievement and a bet on extraordinary potential.
The Bush Foundation is excited about and committed to supporting and developing leaders who are increasingly better equipped and networked to effectively lead change. These leaders think bigger and think differently about what is possible in their communities. Bush Fellows possess a vision for strengthening the common good within the region and are devoted to making that vision a reality.
The Fellowship is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing Fellows to articulate what they need to become more effective leaders – whether through a self-designed learning experience or an academic program. It provides them with the resources and support to make it happen.
Since 1965, the Bush Foundation has worked to develop the leadership capacity of the region by making investments in more than 2,200 people through its Fellowship programs.
