The Colorado Agricultural Leadership Program accepts applications year round. The application process includes two steps:
Step 1 consists of an online application or PDF form that is available for download from our website. By completing this application, the candidate is providing information that helps our Screening Committee members better understand how an applicant may both gain and contribute to our leadership program. It is during the Step 1 process that we also ask for employer and spousal support form and references.
Step 2 is the face-to-face interview conducted by regional Screening Committees. These interviews typically occur in August and are an opportunity for committee members to better understand a candidate’s interest in the program, motivation for seeking the program and the potential for growth if admitted to the program.
The results of the regional Screening Committee interviews are used to select a class. Consideration is given to industry segment, maturity, commitment to personal development and other factors in selecting the members of a class.
