Ford Fellowship

Ford Motor Company, a global corporation and world leader in corporate citizenship, and the 92nd Street Y, the world’s first global Jewish community and cultural center, are proud to join together in launching the tenth year of the Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of the 92nd Street Y. The program is designed to enhance the efforts of emerging leaders in communities throughout the world.

Each year, a group of 20-24 emerging leaders from different regions of the world are selected to become Ford Fellows of the 92nd Street Y. The program includes a three-week residency in New York City (June 2-June 22, 2011) and ongoing communication before and after the residency via telephone and email. Fellows are expected to complete assignments prior to their residency to maximize the value of their fellowship experience and after their residency to evaluate its impact and success.

Learning, Skill Building, and Networking
Fellows participate in an intensive immersion experience designed to address the challenges of community building in today’s world. In partnership with the Picker Center for Executive Education at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, we provide classes and participatory workshops in nonprofit management, leadership, and strategic thinking.

The academic curriculum is complemented by visits to model nonprofits throughout New York City and meetings with academic, business, and government leaders. The experience is enhanced by the Fellows’ residency at the 92nd Street Y, an institution founded in 1874 that has grown to serve over 300,000 people annually. At once a school, a lecture hall, a performance space, and a community organization, the 92nd Street Y is a nonprofit organization unique in the world and vital to the cultural life of New York City. Fellows have the opportunity to meet with 92nd Street Y staff experts, board members, and community partners.
