So you want to be a fellow? Yes, a lot of you do. – Next City

So you want to be a fellow? Yes, a lot of you do.

So, in case you were wondering, we’re not going to do some reality-TV-style countdown to the final winning Urban Leader Fellow — though that would be a lot of fun! We are, however, getting together a great selection committee. Inga Saffron, the architecture critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer; Paul Brophy, a consultant and member of our advisory board; and Abby Wilson, a founder of Great Lakes Urban Exchange (a young urban leader in her own right) have all agreed to participate and whittle down the 15 best applications I select to one very awesome Urban Leader Fellow. Stay tuned, the selection process will be moving very quickly from this moment onward!

Diana Lind is the former executive director and editor in chief of Next City.
