Posted by Annie E. Casey Foundation on June 8, 2021

Nominations and Application Open for 2022–24 Casey Children and Family Fellowship

The Annie E. Casey Foundation is seeking nominations and applications for the twelfth class of its signature Children and Family Fellowship — an intensive executive leadership program, now in its third decade, designed to give more child- and family-serving professionals the confidence and competence they need to lead major system reforms and community change initiatives that get equitable results.

The foundation is looking for individuals who display the following characteristics: a minimum of ten years of diverse professional experience in the social sector, with increasing levels of responsibility and authority serving children and families; a strong record of achievement and career advancement, with sights on even higher levels of influence; a demonstrated commitment to assisting communities that have been underserved, reducing racial disparities, and managing a diverse workforce; an understanding of how race, ethnicity, class, gender, and language affect service delivery, policy, practice, advocacy, and leadership decisions; a commitment to achieving equitable opportunities for all children, youth, and their families — most specifically, those facing the biggest obstacles to well-being — while working closely with those most affected; and an openness to self-reflection as part of personal growth.

The 21-month fellowship program will begin in April 2022 and end in January 2024.

Nominations for the program must be submitted no later than August 20. Nominees will then be invited to complete a full application online, which must be submitted by September 10. Candidates also are welcome to apply directly by the September 10 deadline without being nominated.

The foundation will host a webinar about the fellowship and selection process at 2:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 10. The webinar will feature recent fellows talking about their experience and include an opportunity to ask questions.

For additional information, see the Annie E. Casey Foundation website.

Deadline: August 10, 2021
