Application Process

Each Emerge state will review completed applications and select finalists for the Program.  Finalists will be invited to attend an interview with a selection committee. From these interviews, the  Program members will be selected.

The program dates vary by state but generally meet one weekend a month for 7 months.  The success of the Emerge program depends upon commitment to the program's entire schedule by each participant.  Over the seven-month period, approximately 70 program hours are scheduled.  Some time outside of regularly scheduled seminars will be necessary for class preparation.

Please visit your states' website below for more information on their individual application process.
