2020 Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program

The 2020 Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program 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 (CUNY), 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 and from communities of color under-represented in the U.S. grant-making sector.  .

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.
