GLG Social Impact Fellowship

This material is cross-posted from the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, http://internationalpeaceandconflict.org and appears to be an interesting opportunity for the Humphrey community.   This is meant for information sharing purposes only.  

The Social Impact Fellowship leverages GLG’s learning platform to help top social sector professionals answer critical strategic and organizational questions, at no cost. Through the Fellowship, ambitious, innovative, and visionary nonprofit and social enterprise leaders learn in tailored interactions with experts across GLG’s membership and with each other.

What Fellows Receive

The Fellowship begins with an in-person convening at GLG’s headquarters in New York City, where Fellows join our learning community and learn how to use the GLG platform. During the convening, Fellows work with GLG to identify the top challenges facing their organizations and set learning objectives to meet those challenges.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until July 15th, 2015.
