Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society Accepting Applications for Emerging
Leaders International Fellows Program

  Part of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York
<http://www.gc.cuny.edu/>, the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society
<http://www.philanthropy.org/index.html> focuses on giving, volunteerism,
and nonprofit entrepreneurship by individual donors, foundations, and
corporations in the United States and around the world. The center's
Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program provides nonprofit sector
leadership training through seminars, applied research, and mentorships. The
program is open to young scholars and practitioners interested in building
third sector capacity in their home countries or regions. Fellows are based
at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Fellows will
participate in a three-month seminar (March 1 to May 28, 2010) on the U.S.
and international voluntary sectors. During the seminar, they will learn
about the work of key agencies, meet with foundation leaders and other
nonprofit representatives, and attend selected workshops and conferences.
Fellows are expected to produce a research paper on their findings, which
will be presented in the seminar. The research topic for applicants to the
2010 program is community foundations.

A limited number of fellowships for research on diaspora or corporate
philanthropy may also be available. The program is open to practitioners and
researchers under the age of 36 who are citizens of countries other than the
United States. Applicants must hold a college or university degree and speak
and write English fluently.  Each fellowship award covers the cost of
tuition. The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society will also provide
accommodations, round-trip air travel to and from New York City, and a
stipend to help cover research and living expenses. Visit the Center on
Philanthropy Web site for complete program information.
