New fellowship opportunity from the Open Society Foundation (OSF)
OSF has just launched a new Leadership in Government Fellowship. The fellowship is for senior-level government officials and staff in the United States who have recently left public service and share the commitment to advancing open society in America.
OSF will award individual grants in 2016 to people who have played a significant role in advancing social change from within government in the United States at the local, state, or federal levels. They are looking for public-sector leaders interested in using this fellowship opportunity to reflect on their time in government and to undertake a project that advances policy ideas and inserts their unique perspectives about driving change from within government into the public dialogue.
The Government Alliance for Racial Equity (GARE) would love to work with any of the fellows who were and are leaders advancing racial equity in government.
The fellowship is a pilot grant-making project and is part of a larger effort within OSF to invest in new voices that inform and challenge our collective thinking.
Applications and proposals are due July 15, 2016.
Much appreciation to OSF for this new, forward-thinking, action-oriented opportunity!
