Clore Social Leadership Programme - Applications now open for 2016 fellowship
Applications for the 2016 Clore Social Leadership Programme are now open. Candidates working in the fields of gender equality, youth social justice and migrant communities are invited to apply for three new Specialist Fellowships.
The programme develops leaders with a social purpose so they can transform the world around them. Anyone working or volunteering in UK based charities (including International NGOs, foundations and trusts) social enterprises, housing associations, community organisations and cooperatives can apply.
The Programme, now in its seventh year, has seen 101 Fellows accepted over six cohorts and works with people across the social sector and beyond.
There will be several Specialist Fellowships in 2016 including three new ones:
- Gender Equality Fellowship, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, for an aspiring leader working to create gender equality in society. This can be through grassroots campaigning and activism, leading change at a gender equality organisation or service provider, or leading on gender equality issues at a social sector organisation.
- Youth Social Justice Fellowship funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, for an aspiring leader working with young people in the context of social cohesion and social justice. Applications are particularly welcome from outside London.
- Migrant Communities Fellowship, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, for an aspiring leader working with migrant communities and supporting integration, social cohesion and social justice through their work; or who comes from a migrant community and wants to support social integration, cohesion and justice in their future career. Again, applications are particularly welcome from outside London.
Candidates need to be able to demonstrate significant achievements and leadership potential in work already undertaken and a commitment to the social sector in the longer-term.
Applications are open until 25 June 2015. To find out more and apply to the 2016 cohort, please visit The Clore Social Leadership website
