[USA] The Joel L. Fleishman Civil Society Fellows Program

Created in honor of the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy’s founding director, the Joel L. Fleishman Civil Society Fellows Program provides a select group of leaders from nonprofit organizations, international NGOs, foundations, government, socially responsible businesses, and other civil society groups with the opportunity to spend a four-week residential sabbatical at Duke University’s Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy.

While at Duke, Fellows perform research and work with Institute faculty and other Duke affiliates on issues related to the development of civil society. Applicants are selected based upon their proposed research topic and how they intend to utilize Duke’s resources to benefit their professional work in society. Housing and program expenses are covered. In addition, each Fellow receives a $6000 stipend.

Full-time academics are not eligible to apply. The 2007 Fellowship period will begin October 1, 2007. The Application deadline is May 1, 2007.
