Bush Fellowship Program
The Bush Fellowship Program offers flexible grants to individuals that can be used to pursue education and experiences to become more effective community leaders. Funding may be used to make progress toward or complete an academic degree, or complete a self-learning program where the learning experience is developed by the Bush Fellow.
Past fellows have worked in rural communities to:
- Strengthen community networks

- Improve economic opportunity
Applicants must have distinguished records of accomplishment and:
- Be at least 24 years old at the time of the application deadline
- Have lived for one continuous year immediately prior to the application deadline in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, or one of the 23 Native nations that shares the same geographic area with these states
Up to 24 fellows will be awarded $100,000 to be used over 12-24 months.
