Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of the 92nd Street Y is accepting applications for the 2007 program.

This annual fellowship is funded by the Ford Motor Company and organized by the 92nd Street Y to provide education and support to community leaders engaged in the nonprofit sector. To date, 137 individuals from 36 countries have received the Ford Fellowship, which is now in its seventh year.

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 two-and-a-half-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 June 1-June 20, 2007 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 two-and-a-half-week residency, Ford Fellows take classes in areas including nonprofit management strategy and leadership training 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 the 92nd Street Y, a community and cultural center founded in 1874 that now serves over 300,000 people annually.
