About this grant
The International Fellows in Philanthropy Program was created more than 15 years ago to promote the development of philanthropy and the nonprofit sector at the global level. The program provides six to eight international nonprofit practitioners and scholars in the field an opportunity for advanced study, research and training at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Civil Society Studies.Multiyear funding will support fellowships to international community foundation practitioners or scholars. This will be the first time these fellowships have been specifically offered to community foundation staff. Participants will take part in activities that include preparing a research report on some facet of community foundation operations; participating in a full-semester course on the nonprofit sector and meetings with nonprofit leaders; and developing a presentation on community foundation activities in their home country.To date, more than 120 fellows from four dozen countries have taken part in the program. In addition, the center has hosted fellows’ philanthropy conferences in 15 countries and produced nine conference statements.
