Application to Coro Fellows requires submission of a current resume, two essays, three letters of recommendation and a copy of any undergraduate and graduate school transcripts.

“In my career running a think tank, serving as Deputy Chancellor and as President of the IBM Foundation, I have hosted individual Coro Fellows,  teams of them,  and ultimately hired over a dozen program graduates. I have found them to be highly motivated, very well skilled and  unfailingly creative. I would recommend the program to prospective Fellows, to potential employers and anyone interested in accessing top talent.”

Stan Litow, President IBM Foundation
