What is the 92Y Ford Motor Company fund International Fellowship?
The 92Y Ford Motor Company Fund International Fellowship is an immersive 5-day fellowship program for rising stars working in the non-profit and social impact space. The goal of the program is to educate and empower leaders to build meaningful connections, find new solutions, and build capacity across the sector.
To date, 345 individuals from 74 countries have received the Ford Motor Company Fund International Fellowship, which is now in its eighteenth year. Created by 92Y, a community and cultural center in New York (founder of #GivingTuesday), in partnership with the Ford Motor Company Fund, the program explores key challenges facing local communities and how new technologies, partnerships, and collaborations can help resolve some of these challenges. Over the past two decades, the Ford Fellowship has brought together social entrepreneurs from throughout the world to engage with each other, learn key lessons, and connect as a community.
In 2018, the Fellowship shifted it’s focus to work with leaders in a specific region: Brazil.
The Fellowship will take place in Salvador, Brazil from July 15-19, 2019. It is free for participants. Accommodation, meals, transportation, and other expenses are provided so that Fellows can focus their time on personal and professional growth.
