Alan Thomas Fellowship

The Alan Thomas Fellowship to Promote Civil Society and Voluntary Action

Established in 2007 to promote greater public understanding of the significance of voluntary action and to strengthen leadership for civil society and democratic/voluntary action.

The fellowship is intended to provide a sabbatical to a leader in the NGO/non-profit sector, who would not normally have access to a sabbatical leave. It is hoped that the award will free the recipient, at a transitional moment in his or her professional development, to make a significant contribution to the NGO/not-for-profit sector through research and possible publication or dissemination in the medium of the applicant’s choice (e.g. film, exhibit, performance piece).

There will not be a call for applications for the Alan Thomas Fellowship for 2017. Interested applicants are invited to check the website for updates in the summer of 2017. For further information contact:
