Admission to this program is competitive and is based on professional achievement and organizational responsibility. There is no formal educational requirement, but fluency in written and spoken English is a necessity for the program.
Early application is encouraged. Qualified candidates are admitted on a rolling, space-available basis, and the program often fills to capacity. Because of the interactive nature of this program, the number of participants is limited. Applications received after the deadline will be considered only if space remains in the class. Because the time required to obtain a visa can be lengthy, we encourage applicants from outside the United States to apply at least 12 weeks before the program start date.
Overseas applicants should be aware that the time required to obtain a visa can be several months. This extra time needed should be taken into account during the program application process. Because the time required to obtain a visa can be lengthy, we encourage applicants from outside the United States to apply at least 12 weeks before the program start date.
Executive Education at the Kennedy School of Government recognizes that tuition payment is an obstacle for some applicants. We have identified several fellowship opportunities available to individuals who have applied for and been accepted to a given program.
The following fellowships are administered by separate organizations and have a selection process entirely independent of the Kennedy School. We encourage participants to explore relevant opportunities from this list, and to search for additional sources of fellowship support.
For applicants from Croatia
For senior executives from Croatia's public sector, the Andronico Luksic Fellowships were established to advance Croatia's public interest by providing educational opportunities for the country's human capital at Harvard University. Visit the Fellowship webpage for more information about the Fellowship and further details on the application process, including application deadlines.
For executives eligible for VA Benefits, please apply online. In response to the "Who will be the financial sponsor of your participation" question, type "VA Benefits".
