The New York Community Trust, the community foundation for the New York area, is offering a fellowship for a full-time graduate student. 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.

FELLOWSHIP DETAILS

The fellow will work in the area of Community Development and the Environment under the supervision of two senior staff. Grants in the area of community development focus on sustaining strong communities and creating housing and economic opportunities in low-income neighborhoods. In the area of the environment, grants are made to expand open space and parks, reclaim the waterfront and brownfields, and reduce toxins in New York City. 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.

The fellowship offers $21 hour (no benefits).

THE FELLOWSHIP IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS WHO ARE ENTERING THEIR LAST YEAR OF A FULL-TIME GRADUATE PROGRAM—GRADUATING IN MAY 2015.

The fellowship starts on Monday, May 19, 2014 on a full-time basis through August 2014 (35 hours a week), and then on a part-time basis through May 2015 (15 – 20 hours a week). Candidates must be willing to commit for the entire period.

HOW TO APPLY

Interested candidates should email a resume, cover letter, and short (up to 2 pages) writing sample. Resumes should be received at The Trust by 4:00pm on Friday, April 4, 2014. No phone calls regarding the position will be accepted. Email resume and writing sample to Phoebe Scarborough, Program Assistant: ps@nyct-cfi.org.

Echoing Green: Senior Associate, Climate Fellowship

Echoing Green seeks a passionate and detail-oriented project manager and relationship builder with 7+ years of relevant experience.  The Senior Associate, Climate Fellowship, will work to launch and support the new Echoing Green Climate Fellowship on a team that also supports our existing Global and Black Male Achievement Fellowships.

ABOUT THE POSITION

Every year, Echoing Green identifies approximately 40 incredible, ambitious, exciting potential leaders and then offers them two years of funding and support.  This year we have launched a new program to support emerging leaders with innovative ideas to tackle the climate crisis.  Echoing Green intends to be agnostic regarding various mitigation and adaptation responses – but seeks leaders for whom our model of seed funding and leadership development could be transformative.

Several Senior Associates are the direct liaisons to a portfolio of Echoing Green Fellows.  Each Senior Associate also helps lead on team-wide priorities including our annual application process, regular conferences, etc.  The team is supported by two Program Assistants.

The ideal candidate, then, is eager to operate and execute, and also impassioned about generating new ideas to align fellow programs with Echoing Green’s broader social change agenda.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Direct Fellow Support

  • Liaise with a diverse, international portfolio of new Climate Fellows – writing their Individual Fellow Plans, monitoring their progress, and helping to identify resources and develop tools that support their success

REQUIREMENTS

  • Passion for Echoing Green’s mission, with a commitment to social entrepreneurship and harnessing next generation talent.
  • Outstanding written and oral communication skills.
  • Ideally, the candidate has direct experience as a social entrepreneur.  At a minimum, the candidate has a meaningful understanding of a start-up climate (where our Fellows are).
  • An experienced networker, with some relevant existing networks and a readiness to build new ones with stakeholders at all levels
  • Strong ability to work independently, but also desire for and experience with working in high-performing teams and across departments.
