About this grant

The Senior Fellows Program identifies talented leaders from key philanthropic and civil society institutions worldwide and links them to a global learning and service network. Senior fellows serve as peer consultants to developing foundations and associations of grantmakers around the world, and their work produces knowledge on trends and innovative models, which the Synergos Institute distributes to a wide audience. The current senior fellows’ network is comprised of 82 fellows from 28 countries. Since the program began in 2000, the fellows have conducted more than 200 workshops, seminars, and consultancies. Founded in 1986, the Synergos Institute promotes collaborative approaches that bring rich and poor together, along with other relevant groups and institutions, to overcome poverty and foster sustainable development in developing countries.
