Selection Process

For Associate Residents, our selection process has five stages. Most occur on a rolling basis beginning in August. Each Residency cohort begins with an orientation session held in July of the following year.


Stage 1: Submit your resume (August – February)

We accept and review resumes on a rolling basis, but we encourage you to submit as early as possible, giving you ample time to prepare for each stage of the selection process.

Stage 2: Complete your application (August – February)

If you meet our program qualifications, we will ask you to provide more details about your interests and skill set by submitting an employment history and responding to an essay question. You will have up to four weeks to complete these tasks, depending on when you submit your resume.

Stage 3: Phone interview (August – February)

If you are advanced to this stage, you will be invited to participate in a phone interview with our team.

Stage 4: In-person interview (April)

If you are invited to continue after your phone interview, you will attend a full-day interview session. These include panel interviews and group activities to assess your potential for success in management and leadership in urban public education. They also offer opportunities for candidates to meet program alumni and learn more about the program and the experience. Travel and accommodations are provided. Prospective Associate Residents who proceed past this stage matriculate into The Broad Residency.

Stage 5: Begin the Residency (July)
