The Council for Excellence in Government is launching a new fellowship program designed to help prepare federal leaders for the transition into e-government.
The year-long e-government fellows program will bring government leaders together every six weeks to attend seminars and discussions on information technology strategies and trends, and share best practices during visits to public and private organizations.
Most of the events will take place in Washington. Tuition for the program is $9,750 plus travel expenses.
The Council is looking for individuals in federal agencies who work in policy and program areas where emerging technology is vital to their agency's mission. About 25 applicants will be chosen. Employees at all grades and ranks are welcome to apply.
Applications for the program are available online at www.excelgov.org. The applications are due Sept. 1.
The Council for Excellence in Government is an independent, nonprofit organization seeking to improve government performance at the local, state and federal levels.
