New Voice Fellowships to Support Nonprofits and Promising New Leaders Committed to Social Justice and Peace

Deadline: January 13, 2003

New Voices, inaugurated in 1999, is a national program to help nonprofit organizations bring innovative new talent to their staffs. It awards salary-support grants to small nonprofits demonstrating a commitment to cultivating and strengthening the leadership potential of "new voices." The program is administered by the Academy for Educational Development with funding from the Ford Foundation.

The two-year grants offer support for salary, fringe benefits, financial assistance, mentoring, and a professional development account for a promising new leader. The host nonprofit organizations also receive technical assistance from national experts and a computer to support the work of the fellow.

A defining feature of the program is that the applying nonprofit and its prospective fellow prepare the application together as a team. The organization may recruit its candidate, based on organizational goals, priorities, and needs, or the prospective fellow may approach an eligible organization, based on his or her professional interests. Proposed fellows must clearly represent a "new voice" to the organization and its field of work. Most Fellows will have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree or have equivalent education and experience While there are no limits with regard to age or professional experience, strong applications will demonstrate that this individual would offer new perspectives, expertise, skills, and/or insights to the organization and field. Applications are strongly encouraged from candidates reflecting diverse educational, cultural, and experiential backgrounds. Only U.S.-based nonprofit organizations are eligible. Preference will be given to organizations with annual budgets between $75,000 and $2 million.

Sponsored fields of work include: foreign policy; international economic policy; international peace and security; international human rights; women's rights; racial justice and civil rights; and migrant and refugee rights.

Complete eligibility criteria and application guidelines and forms are available from the New Voices Web site.
