Festa Graduate Leadership Fellowship

The Festa Graduate Leadership Fellowship (established by Fred Festa '81 and MaryLynn Barbero Festa '82) offers full-time graduate students at SUNY Oswego a unique opportunity to model effective leadership styles and practices in a variety of organizational settings.

The fellowship traditionally provides the opportunity to shadow a corporate CEO or organizational leader, work on a public policy issue with a legislator or public official, or develop a significant project for a non-profit organization. The major goal of the fellowship is to provide a mentored experience that will help advance leadership skills. Applicants will propose a self-designed learning experience to help attain leadership goals which has been approved by the proposed site mentor, along with graduate advisor or program director/department chair. The fellowship award is typically $4,000, but varies depending upon the scope and merit of the proposed budget.

Deadline: Application review will begin June 10. Applications will remain open until the available fellowship funds are fully awarded.
