Hightower Emerging Leaders Fellowship

The Hightower Fellowship furthers the JAX Chamber’s goal of empowering the next generation of leaders by running the premier influence development program to improve the greater Jacksonville community.

Program Overview

The Hightower Emerging Leaders Fellowship brings together a class of talented professionals with prominent and influential Jacksonville leaders. Fellows build relationships and learn from Jacksonville leaders who are giving back to the next generation. These round-table discussions will take place in a setting that allows for candid discussion about how these leaders achieved their career success, as well as their challenge for the next generation inheriting the city.

Application Requirements

The Hightower Emerging Leaders Fellowship is committed to championing diversity and the highest quality program. Each class is composed of leaders not only leading in their chosen profession but also across many issues facing our city. Leading candidates are changing the current fabric of our community for the better.

All applicants must be members of JAX Chamber upon acceptance into the Fellowship and between the ages of 26 and 40 years old. If you are employed on the staff of a company with active membership in JAX Chamber, you are a member. A selection committee will review all applications and will invite selected candidates for an in-person interview. From that group, Fellowship participants will be chosen.
