The Chicago Community Trust
The Chicago Community Trust is accepting application for The 2015 Chicago Community Trust Fellowship Program. The Trust’s fellowship program is designed to engage both experienced leaders and emerging leaders in metropolitan Chicago. Fellows engage in professional development activities that will have a positive impact on their work and the City.
The Chicago Community Trust Fellows have the choice of taking a leave from work or continuing to work while engaging in professional development activities. The Chicago Community Trust Fellowship provides financial resources which can cover salary and benefits during time off, costs related to academic courses, coaching, learning from other practitioners and other associated expenses.
Emerging leaders are eligible to apply for up to $30,000 and experienced leaders are eligible to apply for up to $60,000. The Trust anticipates awarding between six and nine Fellowships.
The Fellowship must be completed within the calendar year of 2015.
