Bush Fellowship
24 months

Burnsville, MN — Predicting the future is something many sectors try to do—the government, military, and private sector, especially. But Trista Harris has learned futurism is not at the heart of the nonprofit world. As president of the Minnesota Council on Foundation, she intends to use her Bush Fellowship to study futurism and foresight, and to learn from forward-thinking leaders at such places as the Oxford Scenarios Program, Silicon Valley and Aspen Institute. Her goal is to work across sectors, learning how best to help the philanthropic community prepare for and shape the future.
