09/11/20 - Deadline for Organizations to Host Fellows
Grants to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies to host Fellows to work on projects that address the needs of disadvantaged youth. Projects focus on practices and policies in education, health, equity, and child welfare. Fellows receive a full-time, two-year position for early career professionals. The Fellowship provides salary, benefits, and a stipend for professional development. Fellows work collaboratively with host organizations to execute discrete projects that advance the organizations' missions and allowing Fellows to gain new skills and experiences through policy analysis, research, and advocacy. Projects must have an impact on policy and practice that affects young people in Greater Philadelphia.
Emerging Leader Fellows come from diverse educational backgrounds, such as law, social work, public administration, and education. All possess a deep commitment to social justice; are proactive, organized problem-solvers; and are poised to become leaders in their fields. They advance change by advocating for policy and practice improvements, conducting applied research, advancing new approaches to service delivery, employing legal advocacy strategies, and building coalitions and partnerships.
In addition to financial support, Fellows are provided with the connections and exposure to advance their project goals and promote their professional development. For example, the Foundation intentionally fosters a sense of community among current and former Fellows and provide opportunities to exchange ideas across disciplines and focus areas. Opportunities to disseminate findings to other funders and influencers, both locally and nationally, are also offered.
Emerging Leader Fellow supervisors play a unique and critical role. They not only directly oversee the Fellow’s work, but also serve as mentors and provide connections to professional development opportunities. Specifically, supervisors are expected to:
The capacity of each proposed supervisor to fulfill these obligations is closely examined through detailed questions in the project proposal and an in-person interview.
