The 21st Century Leaders Fellowship is a new program that provides early-career preservation professionals with a comprehensive understanding of historic preservation policy formulation and implementation at the national level. A primary program goal is to promote diversity in the historic preservation leadership. Through an immersive hands-on experience, Fellows interact with policy-makers in the governmental and private sectors, both non-profit and for-profit. Under the guidance of senior ACHP officials, Fellows explore how national preservation policies and programs are created and carried out, develop new networks within a dynamic professional environment, and acquire skills to prepare the Fellow for a leadership role in historic preservation. Fellows can address issues that may include climate change adaptation, Native American affairs, infrastructure, housing policy, regulatory systems, and more.

Fellows will spend six to nine months on-site in Washington, DC. They will participate in policy development activities including research, writing, strategy, partnership cultivation, and legislative monitoring as well as meetings, informal gatherings, and field trips. The ACHP Foundation provides a stipend of up to $40,000 depending on the length of the Fellowship. Applications for the initial Fellowship commencing in January 2023 can be found below. The deadline for applying is September 15.
