THE FELLOWS SUPPORT FUND. The Johns Hopkins International Fellows in Philanthropy Program has provided opportunities for nonprofit and philanthropic scholars and practitioners to spend time at the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies to conduct in-depth research that can be of use to the nonprofit sector of their countries. The Program also convenes regular conferences to examine the nonprofit sector in a host country.
Historically, international and U.S. foundation support for this program allowed us to offer a number of enrichment opportunities in addition providing financial aid and/or stipends to cover travel and living costs. Over the past several years, however, a changing funding environment has made it increasingly difficult to find external support for this Program meaning that, though the Center has continued to provide opportunities, it has not been able to offer the enrichment experiences and financial aid that past Fellows enjoyed.
During the 2009 conference, several Fellows suggested that they would be willing to make contributions to the program in order to help ensure that the program remains accessible and rewarding for the widest possible range of participants. This fund is the result of their generous offer.
Donations. All funds will be automatically deposited into a specially created gift account dedicated to support the Johns Hopkins Philanthropy Fellows Program and the activities of incoming participants. Decisions on the use of funds from this account will be vested in the Director of the Center for Civil Society Studies. The secure donation form is maintained by the Johns Hopkins University.
