The Bush Fellowship is a recognition of extraordinary achievement and a bet on extraordinary potential. The Fellowship provides people with an opportunity to pursue the education and experiences they need to become more effective leaders in their community.
Bush Fellows have a record of accomplishment and want to make an even bigger impact in their community. Fellows determine what they need to become a more effective leader and receive a grant of up to $100,000 to make it happen.
The Fellowship is one way the Bush Foundation works to inspire and support creative problem solving – within and across sectors – to make our region better for everyone. Since 1965, Bush Fellowships have been awarded to more than 2,200 people across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography.
