DHS Fellows Program (502027)
The DHS Fellows Program strengthens the leadership skills of GS-13 and 15 full time employees (or equivalent that may include pay banding and/or uniformed pay grade) through a proven combination of innovative coursework, best practices benchmarking, challenging action-learning projects, executive coaching and assessments, and Department-wide networking – all tailored to DHS’s unique operating environment. The DHS Fellows Program enhances collaboration, promotes a common vision, and ultimately ensures that DHS leadership delivers the right results to the American people.
Career employees at the GS-13 and GS-15 level, WS 14-18, WL-15, NF-5, O-5 and 0-6 who have demonstrated high achievement and are seen as the current and future leaders of the agency and are committed to a career in the Federal Government that are based in the greater Washington, DC area or can travel to Washington, DC for regular meetings.
Program will commence on March 11, 2013, in New York City, and concludes with a residential session and graduation ceremony in Washington, DC on November 22, 2013.
