Apply to the Chapman Fellowship

The Chapman Fellowship brings together 12-15 young professionals and students from Washington State for quarterly dinner programs featuring readings and discussions on civic leadership led by some of our state’s most distinguished leaders in business, education, media, religion, and public service. Chapman Fellows are invited to special networking events throughout the course of a one-year program.
