Interested applicants should review the application
information<http://openpolicynetwork.org/iol/#apply> and
submit an application by *June 30, 2014*. We plan to invite about
15 fellows to participate in the first round of the Institute for Open
Leadership. The in-person portion of the Institute will be held in the San
Francisco bay area in January 2015 (TBD: either January 12-16 or January
19-23). Applications are open to individuals anywhere in the world.

Foundation <http://www.hewlett.org/> and the Open Society
Foundations<http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/> for
funds to kickstart the Institute for Open Leadership.
