Part of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society focuses on giving, volunteerism, and nonprofit entrepreneurship by individual donors, foundations, and corporations in the United States and around the world.
The center's Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program provides nonprofit sector leadership training through seminars, applied research, and mentorships. The program is open to young scholars and practitioners interested in building third sector capacity in their home countries or regions. Fellows are based at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
Fellows will participate in a three-month seminar (March 1 to May 28, 2010) on the U.S. and international voluntary sectors. During the seminar, they will learn about the work of key agencies, meet with foundation leaders and other nonprofit representatives, and attend selected workshops and conferences.
Fellows are expected to produce a research paper on their findings, which will be presented in the seminar. The research topic for applicants to the 2010 program is community foundations. A limited number of fellowships for research on diaspora or corporate philanthropy may also be available.
The program is open to practitioners and researchers under the age of 36 who are citizens of countries other than the United States. Applicants must hold a college or university degree and speak and write English fluently.
Each fellowship award covers the cost of tuition. The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society will also provide accommodations, round-trip air travel to and from New York City, and a stipend to help cover research and living expenses.
