The Alan Thomas Fellowship to Promote Civil Society and 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).
Applications are invited in 2013 for projects that fit within the broad scope of promoting civil society and voluntary action. The application deadline is 4:30 PM Friday, March 29, 2013.
In recognition of a shared desire to strengthen and support leadership capacity in the voluntary sector, as an essential element in advancing social change, both locally and internationally, the Carold Institute and Cuso International are working together to promote our respective fellowship opportunities – the Alan Thomas Fellowship and Cuso International’s annual Bob Ward Memorial Fellowship.
