Education Policy Fellowship Program

Minnesota's Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is a partnership of the Washington D.C. based Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL), the Minnesota-based Center for Policy Design (CPD) and the Minnesota-based Education Evolving (EE). All three organizations are non-partisan, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations. 2019-2020 is the 43rd year of the fellowship program in Minnesota; more than 500 fellows have completed the program since 1976.

The fellowship has as a primary focus on state and federal policy development, and the leadership that is necessary to influence policy development. It is designed to expand and update your working knowledge of state and federal policy design, enactment, and implementation.

This year's fellowship program runs from November 2019 through April 2020. Dinner seminars (an average of two per month) are the backbone of the fellowship. They are designed to provide an up close and personal experience that will include discussions and conversations with key members of Minnesota's executive and legislative branch and their staff. In addition, there is a one day Minnesota Policy Seminar (MPS) at the Capitol and four day Washington Policy Seminar (WPS) in Washington D.C.
