Nominations: Inaugural Knight Public Faces Fellowship

Posted by Knight Foundation on February 26, 2019

The Knight Foundation announced the inaugural Knight Public Spaces Fellowship, intended to recognize leading innovators who are changing the way we think about public space in community.

From now until March 22, we will be accepting nominations for leaders with an exemplary track record of crafting public spaces—trails, parks, plazas and streets—that create opportunities for connection and civic engagement. A small group of fellows will receive a share of up to $1 million in flexible resources to continue their work.

The fellowship will recognize leaders from diverse sectors. We want to know who has had impact in how cities use public spaces to engage, and has the potential to make further contributions.

If you have questions about the application, you can join us for an informational webinar to learn more about the fellowship. Please RSVP to attend here, and we’ll send you more details.

To nominate a candidate or yourself, go to and answer a few questions by March 22 at 11:59 p.m. ET. For more information, take a look at this press release. Follow #knightcities on Twitter for updates, and please spread the word through your networks.
