The Casey Foundation solicits nominations for the Children and Family Fellowship from a prestigious, national network of organizations and individuals who lead many of the most dynamic systems, institutions and programs in America today. This network's wide spheres of influence throughout the nonprofit, private and public sectors uniquely position them to identify the talented leaders sought by the Children and Family Fellowship.
Once nominated, candidates are invited to complete a Fellowship application through our application website. Nominations are not vetted by Foundation staff, so candidates must determine if they are eligible for the opportunity once nominated.
If you are interested in applying, a nomination is not required. You can apply directly through our application website.
The Fellowship selection committee, composed of a diverse team of Casey staff, Fellowship alumni and partners in the Foundation’s work, reviews all applications and recommends candidates for further consideration.
Special attention will be given to candidates with significant ties to the places, organizations and areas of interest in which the Foundation invests. Personal recommendations are then sought and reviewed. The committee selects a small number of finalists who are invited to the Casey Foundation in Baltimore for a series of interviews and group activities. Final selection of Children and Family Fellows is announced following the interviews.
