Emerging Leaders International Fellowship

 The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society is committed to strengthening civil society through education, research, and leadership training.An integral part of The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (CPCS) focuses on giving, volunteerism, and nonprofit entrepreneurship by individual donors, foundations, and corporations in the United States and around the world. 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. Since its inception, CPCS has worked to highlight the philanthropic activities of different institutions and groups, with a particular emphasis on multiculturalism – the patterns of giving and voluntarism by different religious, ethnic, racial, gender, and economic groups. As reflected in its partnership in the Coalition for New Philanthropy, CPCS is committed to linking academic approaches with practitioner needs.

Eligibility: •The program is open to aspiring practitioners and researchers (generally under the age of 36) in the US and overseas. •College or university degree and strong spoken and written English language skills are required.

•TOEFL scores or the equivalent requested from those whose education was in a language other than English. Alternately, please provide a statement describing your facility with the English language within your professional sphere.

 •Award recipients must have a strong institutional base and be well-placed to implement research recommendations.

•Preference is given to candidates who are 1) affiliated with a community foundation or initiatives to support community philanthropy development, and 2) who illustrate in their proposals a clear interest in furthering the work of community foundations or strengthening the local culture of philanthropy.

 •Candidates affiliated with other institutions in the philanthropy sector who submit proposals on current trends and practices in philanthropy (other than community foundations) may apply for consideration on a tuition basis or with financial support from individual or institutional sponsors.

•A select number of full fellowship awards are available, which cover tuition, travel, accommodations and stipend (taxable). These are earmarked for citizens of countries other than the United States or for Americans from communities under-represented in the grantmaking sector.

•Participation on a tuition basis or with financial support from individual or institutional sponsors is open to all, regardless of country of origin or residence. Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements detailed above to be considered for participation on a tuition or sponsorship basis.
