    The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and the ACHP Foundation are delighted to announce a new program to promote diversity and inclusion in the future leadership ranks of the national historic preservation program. The 21st Century Leaders Fellowship will bring a promising young preservation professional to Washington, DC to work with national preservation agencies and organizations in the development and execution of public preservation policy. 

    The Fellowship is designed to provide early-career practitioners, who demonstrate preservation interest and leadership potential, with a deep immersion in policy-making and program leadership at the national level. Fellows will work under the direct supervision of ACHP senior leadership and map out an experiential program that takes into consideration their areas of interest and current historic preservation policy issues and initiatives. The six to nine month experience may include rotation through one or more positions at federal agencies, congressional offices, and non-governmental organizations. 

    Fellows will be intimately involved in activities relating to policy formulation, development, and implementation, congressional and inter-agency relations, and the administrative workings of federal agencies and non-governmental entities. Fellows will have the opportunity to interact with ACHP members, federal policymakers, and leaders of non-governmental organizations and institutions, and will take part in Council meetings, legislative activities, and other associated activities. Fellows will be mentored by senior agency staff and other advisors who are subject matter experts on a variety of preservation-related fields, and will address issues that may include climate change adaptation, Native American affairs, infrastructure and housing policy, regulatory systems, and more. Fellows will be expected to participate in policy development activities including research, writing, strategy, partnership cultivation, and legislative monitoring. In sum, Fellows will have a unique experience that will advance their careers wherever they may lead. 

    The Fellow will receive a stipend for up to $40,000, depending on the duration of the fellowship.

    A description of the Fellowship program and application can be found on the ACHP Foundation's website www.achpfoundation.org. Attached are some FAQs on the program.
