Apply for this!: Aspen Institute philanthropy fellowships for students of color

April 27, 2009

Here’s a request for proposals from the Foundation Center.  It looks like a fabulous opportunity:

The Aspen Institute Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation in Washington, D.C., offers the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fellowship three times a year to introduce a diverse group of students to issues and challenges affecting philanthropy, social enterprise, nonprofit organizations, and other actors in the social sector.

The fellowship, which is based on academic excellence and need, is open to both undergraduate and graduate students of color. The Hearst Fellow serves as an intern with PSI, providing research, writing, and logistical and administrative support for leadership initiatives, public programs, and convenings. Recipients may arrange with their colleges or universities to receive academic credit for the experience.

A fellowship grant of $2,000 will be awarded this fall (and the same for the spring term, but $4,000 for the summer term).  For more information, go to the Program’s website.
