Application Information

Leadership Somerset is looking for leaders who live or work in Somerset County and who reflect a cross-section of ages, cultures, races, interests, viewpoints, professions and experiences. Applicants should have a genuine interest in Somerset County, a desire to become leadership resources for their communities and high standards of personal quality and integrity. Candidates must obtain the consent of their employers and commit to one weekday a month to attend Leadership Somerset classes. Full participation is required to make the experience a success for all class members.

While the majority of the cost to attend the year-long program is underwritten by the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Leadership Somerset program participants are required to contribute a program fee (refer to the application package for the amount) which includes participation in all sessions and meals. Limited financial assistance based on need may be available. A diverse group of applicants will be selected in November to begin the program in January. Attendance at the first session is mandatory for all participants; refer to the application package for the list of session dates.

Applications are available annually in September and are due in October. Please refer to the application for deadlines.
