●  Mentoring by committed senior executives

●  Ongoing leadership development support with an emphasis on racial equity

●  Targeted national recruiting of exemplary Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and female candidates

NUF’s program cultivates and prepares the social impact leaders of tomorrow by combining an interdisciplinary curriculum with hands-on experience and mentoring by a senior leader to give emerging leaders the skills and network they need to successfully drive social change. The fellowship program is centered on early to mid-career professionals who are committed to equity, public service, and social impact.

The mentorship is a critical element of the program and exposes Fellows to careers in the philanthropic, nonprofit, government, and corporate sectors in roles that are focused on social impact. Fellows receive unparalleled access to senior executives, networks, and professional development, while mentor organizations gain fresh perspectives that are key to maintaining their relevance and building their capacity for innovation.

Upon successful completion of the program, Fellows receive a Master of Policy Management degree and entry into a community of over 1,700 alumni that include leaders in higher education, philanthropy, government, and the non-profit and corporate sectors.
