The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has announced that it is accepting applications for the inaugural class of its new “Appalachian Leadership Institute.” The extensive nine-month program was developed in partnership with several organizations including the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and its Howard H. Baker Center for Public Policy.

Running from October through July, the Institute includes skill-building seminars, best practice reviews, and field visits during six separate sessions across the 13-state ARC region followed by a capstone graduation event held in Washington, DC. The program is limited to 40 Fellows, and the application deadline is June 1. For more information and the application, click here.
