This program enhances IS's NGen: Moving Nonprofit Leaders from Next to Now program.
The fellows programming, anchored by the IS National Conference, offers a comprehensive program that develops fellows’ capacity to lead in turbulent times, strengthens their professional networks, and elevates NGen accomplishments on a national level.
Over the course of ten months, these accomplished and innovative leaders will collaborate with other talented under-40 leaders, interact with established mentors, and contribute to Independent Sector's work on nonprofit impact and leadership.
Twelve fellows were each selected in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Each cohort has undertaken a group-led collaborative project that has highlighted issues of concern to next generation leaders and drawn on the talents and experience of the group. The 2012 cohort's project is currently underway.
How are Fellows selected?
American Express NGen Fellows will be selected from diverse and talented under-40 staff at IS member organizations. Applications are now closed.
Applicants are evaluated against the criteria by a selection committee comprised of emerging and established leaders of IS member organizations. Those selected will be contacted in May to confirm their participation in the program.
Those not chosen as fellows for 2013 will be notified in May. We still encourage all applicants and other emerging leaders to attend the NGen pre-conference program at the 2013 Independent Sector National Conference in New York City.
