Senior International Fellows Program 2017-- Program Description

Program description
  • The Senior Fellows Program will run from Monday October 23 through Friday November 17, 2017.
  • The program focus will be community foundations and local place-based giving set within the context of the global philanthropic sector. Additional trends and practices in philanthropy will be covered to provide background and to address the research interests of all participating Fellows.
  • Drawing on the 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.
