The Foun­da­tion is seek­ing nom­i­na­tions and appli­ca­tions for the tenth class of its sig­na­ture Chil­dren and Fam­i­ly Fel­low­ship — an inten­sive exec­u­tive lead­er­ship pro­gram, now in its third decade, designed to give more child and fam­i­ly-serv­ing pro­fes­sion­als the con­fi­dence and com­pe­tence to lead major sys­tem reforms and com­mu­ni­ty change ini­tia­tives that get results. 

To apply for the pro­gram, can­di­dates must first be nom­i­nat­ed, or may nom­i­nate them­selves, by Oct. 2, 2015. Nom­i­nees are then invit­ed to com­plete a full appli­ca­tion online, which must be sub­mit­ted by Oct. 9, 2015. The 16-month Fel­low­ship pro­gram will begin in April 2016.

We are look­ing for indi­vid­u­als who dis­play some or all of the fol­low­ing characteristics:

  • a cur­rent posi­tion in a lead­er­ship role, mak­ing a mea­sur­able dif­fer­ence for chil­dren and families;
  • expe­ri­ence tak­ing an inno­v­a­tive idea to scale;
  • demon­strat­ed abil­i­ty to trans­form sys­tems that serve chil­dren and families; 
  • a his­to­ry of effec­tive col­lab­o­ra­tions among fam­i­lies, com­mu­ni­ties and non­prof­it and pub­lic agencies;
  • appli­ca­tion of new ideas, tools and approach­es that have ben­e­fit­ed their work and organizations;
  • a con­tri­bu­tion to make to a net­work of peers work­ing on the cut­ting edge of chil­dren and fam­i­ly pol­i­cy and reform; and
  • poten­tial to become sig­nif­i­cant­ly more influ­en­tial in their field.

More infor­ma­tion on Fel­low­ship cri­te­ria, as well as pro­files of Fel­lows from each class of the pro­gram, can be found in the lat­est Fel­low­ship brochure
