Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships starting at $18,000 to Western and Central New York leaders of nonprofts, public agencies, safety-net organizations, and healthcare organizations that address the needs of the elderly and young children. The commitment by the organization’s leadership to the participant’s engagement with the Health Leadership Fellows’ program is essential throughout the fellowship.

Funding is intended to support the expansion of skilled leaders that will learn to lead collaboratively from both within and outside of their organizations and become advocates for improved health care delivery, particularly for vulnerable older adults and children impacted by poverty.

The 18-month program includes sessions on personal leadership, leading change, communicating as a leader, results-based leadership and collaboration. In addition to four retreats spanning two to three days each, fellows will meet monthly and develop a collaborative inter-organizational project in small teams. Each fellow will also receive executive coaching and access to the Fellows’ website and learning materials.

Participants selected are vital leaders of organizations and their communities. They must be in decision-making positions of influence in the organizations they represent. Other factors include commitment to course requirements; experience and career aspirations; adaptability to change; receptivity to learning; ability and willingness to apply lessons learned and demonstrated ability to work collaboratively.
