Cleveland Foundation Announces Fellowship for Civic Leaders

Dedicated to improving the quality of life in Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Foundation (www.clevelandfoundation.org) has partnered with Coro to ensure that the local community has talented, diverse, well-prepared civic leaders. The Cleveland Executive Fellowship is an experiential, immersion program designed to accelerate the professional development of civic leaders in Greater Cleveland. Its goal is to prepare individuals for effective and ethical leadership in the public affairs arena. During the yearlong fellowship, participants will gain hands-on experience through executive-level placements in the business, nonprofit, and public sectors, as well as through weekly professional development. Ideal candidates will have a master’s degree and/or professional work equivalent; demonstrated interest in, and a strong commitment to, civic engagement and/or a career in the public affairs arena of Greater Cleveland; ability to provide immediate, tangible, and effective assistance within placements and other fellowship activities; and excellent written and verbal communication skills and computer competency. Fellows will reflect Greater Cleveland’s diverse nature and will have varied academic and professional backgrounds. The program annually awards eight fellowships. The fellowships provide an annual stipend of $40,000. For complete program and application information, see the Cleveland Foundation Web site. The deadline to apply is March 20, 2006.
