2018 Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program details available here February 2018!

2017 International Fellows Program on Community Philanthropy:  April 10 - June 2, 2017

The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society's 2017 International Fellows Program on Community Philanthropy will provide leadership training through seminars with Third-sector practitioners, research based on best practices, and the application of a comparative framework.

Fellows are based at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, where they will attend weekly seminars, explore work of key agencies and foundations, meet with nonprofit leaders and study U.S. and international community foundation models.  During the program, participants pursue an individualized research project and develop a professional presentation to disseminate their findings.

The program is geared to young professionals interested in strengthening community philanthropy and building capacity in local Third-sector institutions. Emerging leaders at community foundations and similar place-based grantmaking organizations are especially encouraged to apply. This year's Fellows will be selected from abroad.  Applicants from communities of color under-represented in the U.S. grantmaking sector are also encouraged to apply.

Generous program funding for the International Fellows Program is provided by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.  Additional support is provided by other foundations and institutions, as well as Friends of the Fellows and program alumni from around the globe.
