Call for applications for the 2015 Alan Thomas Fellowship

We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2015 Alan Thomas Fellowship to Promote Civil Society and Voluntary Action.

The Fellowship was first awarded in 2008, and there are now eight Fellowship recipients whose research and reflection has made a significant contribution towards strengthening leadership for civil society and promoting greater understanding of the importance of voluntary action.

The Fellowship will again be awarded in 2015 to a leader in the NGO/not-for-profit sector who would not normally have access to a sabbatical leave. Valued at a maximum amount of $60,000 for up to one year, the award is intended to allow the recipient, at a transitional moment in his or her career, to make a contribution to the sector, through research and reflection.

In recognition of a shared desire to strengthen and support leadership capacity in the voluntary sector as an essential element in advancing development and positive social change, both locally and internationally, the Carold Institute and Cuso International are now working together to promote our respective Fellowship opportunities.

Visit our webpages at  and for fuller detail on the Fellowships and on past recipients. The new deadline for applications is March 28, 2015 and the 2015 recipients will be announced in July.

Please publicize both these Fellowship as widely as possible among your networks, and strongly encourage any potential candidates to apply.

For further information, please contact us.
