The Massachusetts Women’s Leadership Fellowships

The Women’s Leadership Fellowship program is intended to offer female graduate students who completed their degree requirements a position with managerial and leadership development activities distinct from other full-time positions.

The Fellowship Positions will be supported by the Executive Office or agency hosting the Fellow and were developed to provide the Fellow with employment experience in positions that meet the program goals of:

  • Access—Meaningful and regular engagement with senior agency leaders
  • Impact—Ability to work on and influence projects of key strategic importance to the agency’s mission and goals
  • Leadership—A leadership development experience that builds on the graduate’s  skill sets

To learn more, visit Bentley’s Center for Women in Business. The deadline for applications to be submitted is June 27. Applications will be screened and interviews will be conducted in July.
