Lugar Series LogoRepublican women who aspire to a future in business or politics are encouraged to apply for a slot in the 2015-2016 Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series. It provides first-class leadership training experience that encourages mentors and prepares selected women leaders from across the state to seek new levels of personal achievement and public involvement, according to a statement. Participants have unique access to public officials and an effective and diverse statewide political network.

A total of 466 women from around the state have completed the program since its inception in 1990. Applicants should have demonstrated leadership skills in their fields of work or community service. They will be evaluated on the basis of written and oral presentations.

Lugar says the previous 25 classes have set a high standard for future participants. The Lugar Series is a nonprofit organization funded and operated by the voluntary contributions of individuals and organizations.
