Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to Arizona professionals from nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to participate in educational and professional programs. Eligible individuals are those who have substantial roles in nonprofit organizations that address the areas of health, education, religion, human services, and arts and culture. The organization must primarily serve Maricopa County.

A Piper Fellow’s sabbatical allows work release time and can be taken all at once or divided into several smaller projects or programs. Fellow candidates are encouraged to explore educational and professional programs and visit model program sites and leaders across the nation. Piper Fellows participate in periodic activities during the fellowship year and in subsequent years to build on individual and shared experiences, foster continued professional development, and stimulate potential collaboration among the Piper Fellow organizations.

- Be an outstanding leader who has a demonstrated track record of leadership within the organization and service to the community.
- Be responsible for a significant level of management of the organization’s programmatic or operational activities.
- Have worked a minimum of seven years in the nonprofit sector, though not necessarily for a single organization.
