The Bochnowski Family Veteran Fellowship Program (VFP) is a nonresidential, year-long project-based program for 10 military veterans to accelerate solution-finding at a local, state, or national level. The program seeks participants who want to address challenges in the public sector with actionable outcomes and seek to inform the formation and implementation of policy. The VFP is building an effective and enduring group of successful veteran practitioners, motivated to confront real-world challenges with support from networks at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University.

The Bochnowski Family Veteran Fellowship Program is an accelerator program for do-ers. It provides Fellows time to consolidate thinking on a problem, the space to collaborate and expand stakeholder networks, and the impetus to take active steps to move the policy needle. The VFP celebrates those veterans willing to be bold and innovate in challenging areas central to the well-being and success of our communities, networks, and nation.
The VFP integrates the public policy scholarship and mission of the Hoover Institution with military veterans who exemplify the credibility and talent of the military. The Program seeks to bring greater innovation and action to policy awareness and implementation. Veterans’ unique grasp of the country’s ideals, their personal initiative, and their wide networks present synergies where sound policy ideas can emerge.
