GLPA runs general programs and specialization programs. Our general program covers all campaign topics and is designed to prepare experienced rising campaign leaders to manage competitive campaigns. Our specialization program covers specific campaign areas and is designed to prepare less-experienced rising campaign leaders to lead campaign departments. The 2016 first cohort general program and the 2016 specialization program have been completed, with 60 fellows participating in both programs combined. We are running one more cohort for our general program, applications for which are due Sunday, April 10th.
