On February 12, 2014 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the opening of the application process for the third class of the Empire State Fellows to attract exceptional and diverse talent from New York and around the country to serve in high-level positions in the administration. Since its inception in 2012, the two-year Program has begun preparing a new generation of policy-makers to help lead New York State government.

Candidates selected as Empire Fellows will be appointed to positions in the Executive Branch that match their skills and experience, and will work closely with senior administration officials to create transformative policy solutions to the complex challenges confronting our state. Empire Fellows will also engage in educational and professional development programming that prepares them to serve as effective and ethical government leaders.

Successful Empire State Fellows may continue serving New York State after completing the Program. Governor Cuomo recently appointed three Empire State Fellows to senior positions in his administration: Jennifer M. Gómez is now the New York State Assistant Secretary for Human Services and Information Technology, Nora K. Yates is now the Deputy Director of The Community, Opportunity, Reinvestment Initiative (CORe), and Kisha Santiago-Martinez is now an Assistant Commissioner at New York State Homes and Community Renewal.

Empire State Fellow applications are to submitted by Friday, April 4, 2014. For more information on the Empire State Fellows Program and the application process, go to http://www.dos.ny.gov/newnyleaders/fellows-qualifications.html
