Welcome to the 2020 Bush Fellowship Application

We want to make this application process as easy as possible for you to navigate - please let us know how we can support you along the way.

Contact the Bush Foundation Leadership Programs Team at 651-379-2249 or Fellowships@BushFoundation.org with questions.

Deadline: Applications are due by Thursday, October 24, 2019 at noon Central. The online application system will automatically close at this time and we cannot accept applications after the deadline.

Saving your application: You can save your application to revisit and finish at any time during the open application period.

We recommend you save early and often! To save a change and continue working in the current tab of the application, click the "Save my progress and resume later" checkbox. 

Required fields: Required fields are indicated with a red asterisk. You must fill in all required fields in order to submit the application.

Character counts: Some fields have a character count limit. Copying and pasting text from another program, such as Microsoft Word, can bring over embedded formatting which results in incorrect character counts. We recommend typing directly in the application rather than copying and pasting. If you do copy and paste, keep a close eye on the character count. If you see a negative number, for example "-22 characters left," you have gone over the character count limit by 22 characters and need to reduce those characters by 22. Only the characters that fit within the limit will be successfully submitted.
