About the 2012 Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program
& U.S. Diversity Fellowship
PLEASE NOTE: The program dates have been changed. The program will run from
September 24 to December 14, 2012.
The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society's Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program provides leadership training through seminars and applied research.
Fellowship awards are available for emerging leaders at community foundations, at place-based grantmaking organizations and institutions that support community philanthropy.
Those interested in strengthening community philanthropy and building capacity in local Third-Sector institutions are encouraged to apply. This year's Fellows will be selected from abroad and also from communities of color under-represented in the U.S. grantmaking sector.
Fellows are based at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, where they design and pursue an individualized research project. In addition, they attend weekly seminars, explore work of key agencies and foundations, meet with nonprofit leaders and study U.S. and international community foundation models.
