Philanthropy Fellows

THE JOHNS HOPKINS INTERNATIONAL FELLOWS IN PHILANTHROPY PROGRAM provides a limited number of opportunities for highly-qualified researchers studying nonprofit or philanthropic organizations outside the United States to engage in independent research at the Johns Hopkins Institute for Policy Studies, Center for Civil Society Studies. Research by program participants typically examines an aspect of U.S. nonprofit organizations, often in comparison with nonprofits in their home country, with the expectation that their new knowledge might benefit the nonprofit sector in their home country or region.
 
The Fellows Program also convenes regular conferences that bring Fellows together with civil society researchers and practitioners in a host country to discuss an issue of particular local interest.
 
Please continue reading for information about applying to the program or to learn more about the Fellows Program and Conferences.
