Apply to the Academy

The application process to the 2020 edition of the Academy is officially closed! Soon we will be announcing details about the application process in 2021.

Participation in the Academy is primarily by-nomination. For nominations, please look up the list of our nominating partners and members of our Advisory Board. A limited number of spots is also available for individuals to apply through an open online application process.

First applications will be evaluated first – we strongly encourage early applications to secure placement.

Criteria for Candidates

We aim at outstanding mid-career professionals from Poland with high leadership potential and commitment to social change – see detailed criteria. We are open to talented and passionate people who are curious about the world and want to leave a positive mark on it. So if you have any doubts as to whether you are the right person for the program… do apply. Remember – if you never try, you will never know.

Selection Process

The selection process involves three stages. Firstly, the candidates complete an online application form. Secondly, the selected candidates are contacted for a phone or video interview. Thirdly, the selection committee of the Center for Leadership makes a decision and informs the candidates.
