Here are THREE hot fellowships. Visit The Village to find more out about the following listings:
1. Impact Investing Internship Spring 2017
Organization : Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation
About the Opportunity:
This spring, we are looking for a graduate school intern to work in our New York office 1 to 2
days per week to help us with the execution of our social justice investing research agenda
that is informed by our recent impact investing advisor search. This research will build on
Noyes’ history of responsible, sustainable and impact investing. Specific projects range from
conducting research and coordinating the writing and production of a research publication
that looks at Noyes history of social investing and the learning from our recent impact
investing advisor search to working with the president and finance committee to complete
and ultimately document this process for the field. A key element of this work will be the
exploration of the linkage between impact investing and social justice and the translation of our program goals into our investment strategy.

The Trust, established in 1924, is one of the largest community foundations in the United States with approximately $2.3 billion in assets. It makes grants in four broad areas: Children, Youth and Families; Community Development and the Environment; Education, Arts and Human Justice; and Health and People with Special Needs. In 2013, The Trust made about $140 million in grants. More information is available at www.nycommunitytrust.org.
The fellow will work in the area of Community Development and the Environment under the supervision of two senior staff.

In our national program, we support projects that address climate change, preserve biological diversity, and reduce toxins that are hazardous to human health.
The fellow will be exposed to all areas of the grantmaking process, including proposal reviews, grant investigations, analysis of critical issues, writing grant recommendations, and reports on grant implementation. A major responsibility will be monitoring the performance of grantees and writing progress reports.
Candidates should have strong writing skills, a background in one or more of the focus areas, have the ability to conduct meetings and interviews with grantees, be able to work independently and in a timely manner, and function within a professional office environment.
