Fellowship awards are available for emerging leaders at community foundations, at place-based grantmaking organizations and institutions that support community philanthropy. Those interested in building Third-Sector capacity and strengthening local philanthropy are encouraged to apply. This year’s Fellows will be selected from abroad and also from communities of color under-represented in the U.S. grantmaking sector…

The program is from Monday, March 5 to Friday, May 25, 2012, and is open to aspiring practitioners and researchers (generally under the age of 36) in the US and overseas.  Application deadline: September 23, 2011.

Second, the Maytree Foundation in Toronto, Canada is now accepting applications for its 2012 DiverseCity Fellows program:
