Associate Residents

For Candidates Already Working in K-12 Public Education

Candidates currently working in a district, public charter school network or state department of education can apply if they meet the following eligibility requirements:




Must have been in their organization for fewer than three years by the time they join the program 

Candidates for the 2018-2020 class may not have been employed by their current organization prior to July 2015.

The Broad Residency’s professional development largely focuses on the transition into public education and how to succeed as new manager in this sector.

Must be working in a role that impacts multiple schools

The Broad Residency’s mission is to improve school systems.

Must have:

  • An advanced degree and more than four years of full-time work experience in total, with two years of experience in one or more functional areas OR

  • A bachelor's degree and more than six years of full-time work experience in total, with two years of experience in one or more functional areas

For more information about these requirements, please see the "Additional Criteria" portion of the Selection Criteria page.


These candidates, if accepted into the program, are called Associate Residents. They are evaluated on the same selection criteria and receive the same support, training and resources as other Broad Residents. Since these candidates enter the program with pre-existing positions, The Broad Center plays no role in supporting their salaries.

Each year, The Broad Center identifies organizations from which we will invite Associate Resident applications. These organizations must meet our partner organization eligibility criteria.


Second-round interviews for Associate Residents will be held in April 2018.

If you would like to explore your organization's eligibility or nominate an individual as a 2018 Associate Resident candidate, please contact Donnie Stuart at
