Fellowship Opportunit​y for Emerging NYC Philanthro​pists


The Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service is a prestigious leadership and professional development program for a diverse group of approximately 30 early-career professionals working full-time for nonprofits, government agencies and philanthropic organizations in New York City. It is sponsored by the Research Center for Leadership in Action at NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, a nationally top-ranked school for public service.

The fellowship offers a chance for recent college graduates working full-time in public service in New York City to:
  • Deepen their understanding of the public service landscape
  • Assess and develop their leadership knowledge and skills
  • Learn from senior leaders in the field about their own public service journeys
  • Receive mentorship from senior directors in public service organizations
  • Think strategically about how to be most effective in their current roles
  • Plan for their careers based on their unique interests and goals
  • Build a support network of other talented, dynamic leaders in public service
The program runs from November 2012 through May 2013. Fellowship sessions twice each month provide leadership and professional development opportunities to help Fellows define their public service path. Upon completion of the program, Fellows join an active alumni network of more than 200 people.

To be eligible for the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service, applicants must be working full-time in public service in New York City and commit to attending all fellowship sessions, including a day-long orientation on November 10, 2012. Applicants should be approximately 2-5 years out of college, and most will not have completed graduate school. The program fee is $500.

The deadline to apply is noon EST on Wednesday, August 29, 2012.
