Blog image.pngThe California Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is pleased to announce our second cohort of Fellows. California EPFP is jointly administered by the Center for California Studies and EdInsights at Sacramento State. Each year, the professional development initiative brings together 20 Fellows from K-12 and higher education to explore topics related to student success.

This year’s Fellows will attend three intensive weekend seminars and engage with policy experts about big issues in public education. The curriculum is designed to build strong networks of systems thinkers who can help improve policy creation and implementation in California to support students across the K-16 pipeline.

According to one former Fellow, “The biggest success of California EPFP is the wonderful network. I feel like I have someone to call if I have a policy or implementation issue who could give me advice.” Through participation in the program, California EPFP Fellows gain access to alumni in this state, as well as a national network of approximately 300 current Fellows and more than 3,000 alumni from 17 other EPFP sites across the country.

The program’s opening weekend seminar will be in October at Asilomar in Pacific Grove. Applications for the 2018-19 cohort are available in Spring 2018. If you’re interested in receiving a note when applications are available, email

California EPFP is supported by grants from College Futures Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
