Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs

About the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs

The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs operates in five cities (Coro centers are located in New York, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and St. Louis) and each is a full-time, nine-month program. Fellows learn with and from a tight-knit cohort of 12 highly motivated learners, many of whom become part of a lifelong professional and personal relationship. Fellows explore ideas in a non-partisan setting with people of different life experiences. Fellows interview leaders they would not otherwise meet and have access to organizations because of Coro’s relationships. Fellows gain access to Coro’s incredible, well-respected community of alumni and supporters.

Each Coro center is independent but also works in coordination with the other centers. Each Fellows Program in Public Affairs follows a central curriculum of personal and professional development. Each center offers unique experiences as well. A graduate of any center emerges with similar preparation for civic leadership.

Coro provides a stipend to help defray, but not cover, a fellows’ living expenses. Some Coro centers also provide additional benefits such as health insurance premium reimbursements while fellows are in the program and certain travel expenses directly related to program activities. Upon completion of the program, Coro Fellows are afforded unique benefits from certain graduate schools. Coro does not reimburse for relocation expenses.
