128 Expressions of Interest/Nominations Received for the 1st Cohort of the MBLP
The Mindanao Bridging Leaders Program (MBLP), the 4th cohort of the Center for Bridging Leadership under the Bridging Leadership Fellows Program, has officially closed its nominations with a record-breaking total of 128 expressions of interest to the fellowship.
Over 60 complete submissions are being considered by the screening committee for the program. The Screening Committee is composed of several key players with influence or ongoing involvement in Mindanao as well as past fellows of the Center. A total of 14 panelists will be conducting interviews with the potential fellows. At least three panelists per applicant will be assigned per interviewee based on random selection. Interviews will end this June to give enough time for selected fellows to prepare for the first workshop of the program scheduled on July 11 to 17, 2011, at the Asian Institute of Management.
The final 24 fellows for the program will be announced on July 1, 2011.
The second cohort of the MBLP is scheduled or January 2012 with its call for nominations set for the 4th quarter of 2011.
