A reviewing panel scores each applicant on the basis of their statements related to global leadership, purpose for attending the academy, and long-term goals & career aspirations. We ask applicants to submit a one-page résumé. Although not used in the initial scoring, résumés will be considered in resolving close rankings among applicants.
We want candidates interested in addressing some of the current pressing issues, such as global climate change, the need to incorporate sustainable practices into public lands management, declining historical literacy, the need to engage indigenous people's knowledge in protected area management, etc. A strong interest in a career related to public lands, & cultural or protected sites is important.
