Applications are being accepted for the Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP). Past participants include legislators, business people, education leaders and private foundation representatives. The Partnership is extending the deadline for accepting application for EPFP to Friday, July 13. If you are interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of education policy issues you won’t want to miss the application deadline.
The Georgia Partnership takes pride in setting the EPFP apart from programs in other states by having Fellows from a wide array of backgrounds. This diverse class representation has added to the richness of the class discussions while also adding to the program’s quality, so we don’t want to miss the chance to cast our net wider.
Chata Spikes, an associate professor at Fort Valley State University and a recent 2011-2012 graduate, called the program both personally and professionally rewarding.
“EPFP is the training ground for Georgia’s state leaders, educators and business partners,” Spikes explained. “The program provides a road map that will guide interested persons to ideas and methods that will help improve the areas that need improvement and enhance the areas that are working.”
