2019 Senior International Fellows Program -- Program Description

Program description
  • The Senior Fellows Program will run from Monday April 22 through Friday May 17, 2019.  Participants are expected to be present on site during the full 4-week program.
  • The program focus will be community foundations and local place-based giving and grantmaking practices globally. Additional trends and practices in philanthropy will be covered to provide background and to address the research interests of all participating Fellows. (Arrangements to explore other issues related to an applicant’s professional work is an option with external funding.)
  • Drawing on seminars, readings, discussions with leaders in the field, and the Fellows' own experiences, each participant will produce a strategy paper with recommendations for the development, adaptation or expansion of community grantmaking or another approved topic. It is expected that these recommendations will consider the variety of experiences around the globe, and will reflect the particular political, social, economic and legal frameworks in the Fellows' home countries.
