Fellowships and in-kind support to USA individuals for projects that promote social justice and address challenges related to inequality and climate change. Eligible expenses include project-related costs, including but not limited to, research, conference fees, website development, travel, and living expenses.
The program provides the opportunity to turn an inspired idea that advances social justice into a reality. Fellows also receive hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to scale the impact of their work.
The topic of a Fellow’s project should generally align with the Foundation’s focus on climate change and inequality. It should aim to transform systems and mindsets that hinder progress towards a more sustainable and equitable future for all people, particularly women and people of color. The Foundation is also interested in innovative approaches that cut across topics. For more information on the Foundation's focus areas, see https://nathancummings.org/our-focus/.
Proposed projects might include the creation of a product such as a book or report; a public hearing or presentation; a launch of an initiative or nonprofit organization; an art piece; or other creative work products.
