The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation would like to thank everyone who applied to the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program. We are thrilled with both the abundance and quality of candidates and thank them for taking the time to apply to this unique program.

The Foundation is pleased to confirm that hundreds of young leaders from all over the world from very diverse backgrounds – coming from the arts, advocacy, communications, journalism, education, engineering, governance, law, politics, security, social innovation – applied to become the next cohort of Public Leadership Fellows, each and every one of them ready to tackle the challenge of inclusion facing culturally diverse societies.

As the Foundation continues with the Program’s selection process, it would also like to thank the entire Jeanne Sauvé Network for the help it has given us with promoting the call for applications, both online and on the ground, as well as with the ongoing selection process. The entire Network’s collective efforts have been invaluable, and we thank you.

We are currently in the process of finding our next Fellows: young global change-makers who have the aptitude and attitude for public leadership, who are passionate about inclusion, who demonstrate vision, courage, originality, and a passion to contribute to positive social change.

Please note that candidates who make it to the final interview stage will be contacted by the end of November and offer letters are expected to be sent out by mid-to-end of December. For any questions about the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, please contact us at
