The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society is accepting applications now for the 2018 Emerging Leaders International Fellows Program, October 1 - November 30, 2018, at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York, NY.


We seek your help in identifying candidates who would benefit from a month-long fellowship to read, reflect, and exchange best practices and new strategies around local giving for local purpose. It is also an opportunity for scholars to become more enmeshed in the practice of community philanthropy.


The program focuses on community foundations, local place-based giving and participatory grantmaking practices globally, with additional topics in philanthropy covered to address the research interests of all participating Fellows. Drawing on seminars, readings, discussions with leaders in the field, and the Fellows' own experiences, each participant will produce a strategy paper. It will offer recommendations that reflect the particular political, social, economic and legal frameworks in the Fellows' home countries.


The Center has some funding for fellows who work in community philanthropy, and we welcome candidates from NGO and philanthropy support organizations and other opportunities to broaden the fellowship to other issues in the field. The candidates should be international or from hitherto unrepresented communities in the United States.


Applications accepted online through May 14th, 2018. Questions may be emailed to with “ELIFP2018” in the subject line.
