The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is accepting applications for the WKKF Community Leadership fellowship program. Over a three-year period, fellows will engage in shared learning experiences designed to help transform them into effective agents of social change. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 to cover travel and accommodation expenses related to quarterly cohort meetings, for leadership network projects, and as partial salary support. The WKKF Community Leadership Network Fellowship targets individuals who can be transformative social change agents in their communities so that vulnerable children and their families can achieve optimal health and well-being, academic achievement and financial security.
Ideal candidates are emerging or established leaders who:
- grasp the importance of working and engaging with others to explore solutions and solve conflicts;
- empathize and connect to others through voice, action or presence; and
- respond to new opportunities and relationships in the service of social change.
Twenty fellows will be selected to function as a national cohort whose work will focus on racial healing and equity and help inform the work occurring in WKKF’s priority places. The foundation hopes to attract a broad array of emerging and established leaders, a balance of individuals who are previously known or unknown to WKKF, both visible and invisible leaders and those who embody a diversity of perspective – the small business owner, the local city council member, an early education teacher, the community gardener, the pastor, the crossing guard and all those who envision a better tomorrow for children. Candidates can submit their application online through Jan. 10, 2014. For complete program guidelines and application instructions, including an FAQ and program brochure, visit WKKF’s website.
