The Mount Vernon Leadership Fellows Program is a highly selective six week summer institute for rising college juniors offering unparalleled learning and networking opportunities at the home of America’s first president just outside our nation’s capital.-->
A key tenet of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association mission includes "educating the world about the life and legacies of George Washington, so that his example of character and leadership will continue to inform and inspire future generations." Since 2015, one of the programs that has most completely fulfilled this charge is the Mount Vernon Leadership Fellows. Our commitment to supporting the next generation of young Americans is steadfast and long-term, but owing to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully announce we will not host the Mount Vernon Leadership Fellows program in 2021. The decision to suspend our 2020 program was an unfortunate but necessary one, and we are extremely disappointed we will have to continue this hiatus through the next year.
Sponsoring a summer fellowship for our nation's brightest college leaders has been rewarding and inspiring, and we are hopeful that this program will continue one day soon.
