The Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) Emergence Leader Program. The Homeland Security Emergence Program is a unique opportunity for homeland security/public safety professionals who are in the early stages of their career. This is a six-month program with (2) one-week in-residence sessions and network-based learning prior to both in-residences. The in-residence sessions are held at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. Participants will discuss both the challenges associated with these complex trends as well as the opportunities to rethink how we protect our communities and the nation. In addition, program sessions will assist participants in “emergence” strategies for implementing innovative ideas, being a leader, and for a successful homeland security career.
All costs associated with participating - tuition, books and travel - will be covered by CHDS through its sponsor, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Preparedness Directorate (FEMA).
The current application period is closed and will reopen January 2021. Civilians are required to submit two applications for CHDS programs. Fall 2021 applications are due to DHS by noon ET on April 8, 2021 and the Naval Postgraduate School by noon ET on May 1, 2021.
A CHDS selection Panel will convene and select finalists for acceptance into the program.
