Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society Invites Applications for Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program

Deadline: September 30, 2004

The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society’s (<a href="http://philanthropy.org/">http://philanthropy.org/</a>) Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program provides leadership training through applied research and professional mentorships for young scholar-practitioners in the nonprofit sector. The program is open to scholars and practitioners interested in building third-sector capacity in the United States and overseas. This year’s fellows will be selected from abroad and also from communities of color under-represented in the U.S. grantmaking sector.

Fellows are based at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where they design and pursue an individualized research project and participate in a three-month seminar with third-sector leaders. Specific topical areas are chosen each year. The topics for the Emerging Leaders Program in 2005 will be community foundations and diaspora philanthropy.

Each fellowship covers the cost of tuition and includes a $1,300-per month stipend to cover living expenses. The center also provides dormitory accommodations and round-trip air travel to and from the United States.

The program is open to practitioners and researchers under the age of 36. Applicants must hold a college or university degree and speak and write English fluently. Preference will be given to candidates with strong ties to a third-sector institution and demonstrated research skills. Traditionally, selected fellows are citizens of countries other than the United States. In 2005, the program also will include one fellow from a community of color under-represented in the grantmaking sector in the U.S.

For complete program information and application instructions, see the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society Web site.
