Milanovich Fellowship began in 2015 as a partnership between The George Washington University and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians with two goals in mind: to prepare the next generation of leaders in Indian County, and to honor and preserve the legacy of service and leadership of the late Tribal Chairman Richard M. Milanovich. The George Washington University and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians invite qualified Native American applicants to apply for this prestigious opportunity.

- Applicants applying for the Richard M. Milanovich Fellowship must submit an application for the Native American Political Leadership Program,
- An additional 350 word essay answering, “What do you believe are the most important issues that Native communities are confronted with today, and how do you see yourself in the equation of solving these issues?”
