Fellowship applications for Nebraska LEAD (Leadership Education/Action Development) Group 33 are now available for men and women involved in production agriculture or agribusiness.

“Up to 30 motivated men and women with demonstrated leadership potential will be selected from five geographic districts across our state," said Terry Hejny, Nebraska LEAD Program director.

In addition to monthly three-day seminars throughout Nebraska from mid-September through early April each year, Nebraska LEAD Fellows also participate in a 10-day National Study/Travel Seminar and a two-week International Study/Travel Seminar.

Seminar themes include economics, government, communications, international trade, business and industry, natural resources, education and finance and as well as agriculture, Hejny said.

The Nebraska LEAD Program is designed to prepare the spokespersons, problem-solvers, and decision makers for Nebraska and its agricultural industry.

In its 32nd year, the program is operated by the Nebraska Agricultural Leadership Council, a nonprofit organization, in collaboration with the University of Nebraska’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and in cooperation with Nebraska colleges and universities, business and industry, and individuals throughout the state.

Applications are due no later than June 15 and are available from the Nebraska LEAD Program by emailing Shana at sgerdes2@unl.edu, sending a written request to Room 318 Biochemistry Hall, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 68583-0763 or by calling (402) 472-6810.
