EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FELLOWSHIP

The Executive Director Fellowship through the NJCSLP identifies a cohort of Highly Qualified Rising Charter Entrepreneurs to envision, design, and actualize a transformational charter school model. The ED Fellowship is a small cohort-based incubation experience for New Jersey Leaders ready to take the leap into Charter Foundership.

The intensive program guides our ED Fellows through a rigorous learning cycle rooted in the key elements of the Charter School Application process.
