The 2011-2013 class of the Empire State Fellows -- the inaugural class of a program created by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to prepare a new generation of leaders for policy-making roles in New York State government -- has already made an impact on the administration. From promoting economic development programs to devising strategies to assist needy New Yorkers, the 2011-2013 Empire State Fellows are working closely with officials in the administration and participating in making key policy decisions.

Applications for the next class of Empire State Fellows (2013-2015) are due by Friday, April 12, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. 

To apply, candidates must email a cover letter, resume, personal statement, and two letters of recommendation to fellows@exec.ny.gov

Additional information about the 2013-2015 program and the application process is available at http://www.dos.ny.gov/newnyleaders/fellows_app.html.

During the first six months of the program, the Empire State Fellows met and worked with top-level administration officials and participated in intensive government and policy courses at the Rockefeller Institute in Albany. These  Fellows are currently working on challenging and important issues facing New York State and using their knowledge and background to make positive contributions.

Examples of the work the current Fellows have undertaken in the last six months include:

*        Development of financing options for the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation

*         Minority and Women-Owned Business procurement

*        New York Wine and Beer Summit to promote New York business

*        Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts and New York State Long-Term Disaster Preparedness Initiative

*        New York State Homeownership Repair and Rebuilding Fund

*         Regional Economic Development Councils Opportunity Agenda initiative
