Offer: 2013 Cordes Fellowships (deadline to apply: 31 January 2013)

Cordes Fellowships to the 2013 Opportunity Collaboration are now available! Exceptional social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders engaged in poverty alleviation and economic justice enterprises are encouraged to apply by January 31st 2013.

Opportunity Collaboration is a problem-solving, strategic retreat for nonprofit leaders, forprofit social entrepreneurs, grant-makers and social investors. On World Poverty Day in Ixtapa, Mexico, every Delegate is asked to be both a learner and a contributor. Break down the silos of unproductive competition and go beyond the boundaries of conventional poverty alleviation. Leverage resources, share innovations, enlist allies, build coalitions and create force multipliers.

The purpose of the Opportunity Collaboration Cordes Fellowship program is to (a) open doors, minds and networks for emerging social entrepreneurs and nonprofit executives, (b) enrich the Opportunity Collaboration with new, emerging leaders and (c) infuse the collaborative discussions with a diversity of perspectives.

Eligibility Criteria

Successful Cordes Fellowship applicants are high-impact, innovative, entrepreneurial for-profit and nonprofit organization executives with a demonstrated commitment to economic justice and poverty alleviation. Like all Delegates, Fellows are catalytic leaders who by their actions and accomplishments evidence pragmatic vision, passionate tenacity, multi-sectoral thinking, adaptive leadership skills, non-ideological activism and a strong ethical grounding.

Financial need is a primary consideration. Applicants from both nonprofit and for-profit organizations with adequate resources are less likely to be selected for a Cordes Fellowship. Applications from Delegates whose organizations, companies or ventures have already attended a prior Opportunity Collaboration will not be considered.

Multiple applicants from one organization will not be considered; submit one application for the most senior leader from your institution.

Cordes Fellowship Program
In total, 50 Fellows take part in all aspects of the Opportunity Collaboration, including selecting from Delegate-led Capacity Building sessions. In addition, Fellows take onsite college-level courses on creating social impact and effectively combating poverty, earning a certificate of completion from the University of the Pacific Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship.
