Application & Interview Processes

Applications are accepted after you attend a Candidate Reception, and interviews will begin in October.


The interview process will continue from October into mid-November until the Class of 2019 has been selected, with 22-28 participants (“Fellows”). An interview is a requirement for any candidate to be accepted into the Program and will be scheduled at the sole discretion of Leadership Delaware.


Shortly after November 11th, applicants will be advised whether or not they have been accepted into the Program. Our goal is to have the Leadership Delaware Class of 2019 formed by the middle of November, so that those accepted into the Program can schedule themselves to be available and in attendance at the Joint Fellows’ Reception on November 20th, the New Fellows’ Orientation in January, and for the monthly sessions beginning February 2019.


Applicants whose applications are received after COB Friday, November 2, 2018 will be considered on a “space available” basis.
