Nonprofit Leadership Fellows Program

Live your passion to transform the world and gain new skills and networks to embark on an exciting nonprofit leadership career through the Nonprofit Leadership Fellows Program at the Do Good Institute (DGI), School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland. 

Each year, we will select up to five exceptional students to participate in the two-year Nonprofit Leadership Fellows program. The Fellowship is focused on providing professional development opportunities to students who wish to pursue careers in the nonprofit field. Fellows will have three paid internships with leading organizations over the course of their Master’s program, as well as access to career and financial advising from nonprofit and private sector professionals. We recognize the importance of financial support for graduate students and that is why Fellows receive tuition remission, a living stipend, and health benefits.

Each Nonprofit Leadership Fellow will receive substantial financial support and professional development; the unparalleled benefits package includes:

  • Two Years of Tuition Support
  • Living Stipend
  • Health Benefits
  • Mentorship and Training
  • Paid Internship with Do Good Institute (year 1)
  • Paid Summer Internship placement with a nonprofit organization (summer between year 1 and 2)
  • Paid Internship Placement with a nonprofit organization (year 2)

We will recruit the first cohort of Fellows to start in fall 2017 and are looking for individuals who possess exceptional leadership potential and have the passion and drive to change the world through a career in nonprofits and NGOs.

Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year are closed.
