Starling Collective, A Global Learning Community & Innovative Fellowship – Sep 1

Posted by GivingTuesday on July 27, 2021

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day to encourage people to do good. It is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

GivingTuesday welcomes applications for the Starling Collective, a global learning community and innovative fellowship designed to identify creative, passionate leaders who are working to accelerate innovative approaches to catalyzing generosity, empathy, equity, and justice.

The program welcomes applications from innovators of all backgrounds, and is specifically designed for grassroots organizers, activists, artists, and changemakers from under-represented and under-resourced communities. Selected participants will engage in a six-month peer learning community to share what’s working, what’s not; gain access to coaching, peer support, and movement-building tools and resources; receive a $2,000 microgrant in support of leadership development or on-the-ground work; and have the opportunity to present ideas or initiatives for a chance to receive additional funding with which to grow and launch new ideas and scale positive impact in the community.

To be eligible, applicants must be over the age of 13 in the United States or the equivalent legal age to participate in the program in their home country. If accepted, applicants under the age of 18 must have the permission of a parent or guardian to participate in and receive any fellowship payments. Applicants must be legally permitted to receive and accept funds from a U.S. nonprofit organization.

Deadline: September 1, 2021
