Future Chiefs Cohort 7 Application

The Chiefs for Change Future Chiefs leadership development program is building a pipeline of talented and diverse educators ready to oversee state education departments and large urban school systems. Future Chiefs participate in an 18-month program of collective learning about issues that are central to effective leadership and receive coaching and mentorship from Chiefs for Change members.


We are currently accepting applications for the next cohort of Future Chiefs. To be considered for the program, candidates must be outstanding senior education leaders who plan to become superintendents in the next one to two years. In addition, we welcome applications from sitting superintendents who lead districts with fewer than 15,000 students and who have cabinet-level experience in mid- to large-size districts or state education departments. Candidates must share Chiefs for Change’s core beliefs. Those selected to join the program will be notified in late 2022, and the new cohort will be announced in early 2023. 


If you are interested in being considered for the program, please complete the below application by Monday, September 21, 2022.


Applications will be kept confidential. We will not use or share your contact information without your permission.
