All interviews will take place in October, and a new class of Fellows, between 15-20 participants (smaller size due to CDC precautions), will be announced in early November. 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.

Interview Dates (6:00-8:30 pm) – details will be sent to applicants once the completed application is received.  

  • Tuesday, October 13 (interview full, closed)

  • Wednesday, October 28 (13 interview slots available)
Picture taken from year's past
Shortly after the final interview, applicants will be advised whether or not they have been accepted into the Program. Our goal is to have the incoming Leadership Delaware Class 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 at the end of November, the New Fellows’ Orientation in January, and for the monthly sessions beginning February.
