The Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is the nationally recognized leadership development program sponsored by the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) and managed in CT by Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES). 

EPFP is a year-long leadership development program for emerging and experienced leaders. EPFP fellows work with established leaders in education, politics, advocacy and related sectors in order to learn to advocate on behalf of their organizations, develop networks of influence, and build their own leadership capacity. CT EPFP alumni hold influential positions in school district central offices, public and private schools, institutes of higher education, the CT State Department of Education, and education-related nonprofits and advocacy organizations. Fellows are typically endorsed and supported by their employer.
