Stoneleigh Fellowship

Stoneleigh Fellowship

The Stoneleigh Fellowship offers an opportunity for people with good ideas to act on them. Through this fellowship, we identify and support practitioners, researchers, and advocates to advance reforms in the systems that serve children at risk of involvement or involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems and those impacted by violence. Yet, we understand that government, community and private systems must work in tandem to effect social change, thus we look for individuals who can “connect the unconnected” through cross-system reforms.

The purpose of the fellowship is to support individuals who will:

  • Develop new approaches to entrenched or emerging challenges in our areas of focus
  • Identify, validate and test promising programs and practices
  • Enrich and inform the fields of interest informs and affects  public policy and practice
  • Improve life outcomes and opportunities for vulnerable youth
