The 2014 Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of 92nd Street Y is now accepting applications from community leaders who are living and working in Brazil, P.R. China, Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, Israel, Myanmar, Russian Federation, Senegal, and Turkey. Applications must be postmarked, faxed, or emailed by June 30, 2013 to be considered.

This annual fellowship is funded by the Ford Motor Company Fund and organized by 92nd Street Y to provide education and support to community leaders engaged in the nonprofit sector.  To date, more than 270 individuals from 70 countries have received the Ford Fellowship, which is now in its fourteenth year.

In order to be eligible for this fellowship, the applicant must be:
§     At least 21 years old (by June 1, 2014)
§     Fluent in English
§     Living and working in one of the 2014 Participating Countries

A successful applicant must demonstrate that he or she:
§    is a community leader engaged in the nonprofit sector, either professionally or as a volunteer;
§    is successfully addressing issues that affect the community’s well-being; and
§    would benefit from an intensive three-week nonprofit management training course in New York.

Previous Ford Fellows include:
§     a South African AIDS educator;
§     the president of a Jewish aid society facilitating Bosnia-Herzegovina’s transition to democracy;
§     a sustainable development expert from Zimbabwe;
§     the founder of an Indian organization that educates women and children working in the silk industry; and
§     an Indonesian advocate for ethnic minorities.

The residency takes place May 28–June 19, 2014 in New York City.  Airfare, accommodation, food, transportation, instruction, and other program-related expenses are included in the fellowship, and participants receive a small stipend upon arrival.

During the intensive three-week residency, Ford Fellows take classes in areas including nonprofit management strategy and leadership at Columbia University’s Picker Center for Executive Education.  The academic curriculum is complemented by visits to model nonprofits in New York City and meetings with academic, business, and government leaders.  The experience is enhanced by Fellows’ residency at 92nd Street Y, a Jewish community and cultural center founded in 1874 that annually serves over 300,000 people of all national, ethnic, religious, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds.

The Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of 92nd Street Y provides a tremendous opportunity to international community leaders, and I would greatly appreciate your help in distributing this information and the link to our application to people and organizations that could benefit from this fellowship.  Once again, if you go to our website www.92Y.org/ford, you can download the application and brochure by clicking “2014 Application and Brochure,” and following the links on the next page.  Applications for the 2014 Fellowship must be postmarked, faxed, or emailed no later than June 30, 2013.
