Applying for an Emerging Leader Fellowship


The Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship is a two-year, full-time, hands-on position for early career professionals. Fellows work collaboratively with a host organization and the Stoneleigh Foundation to execute a project that advances the missions of these organizations and enhances Fellows’ professional skills and leadership development. The Fellowship provides salary, benefits, and a stipend for professional development. See our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.


Organizations interested in hosting an Emerging Leader Fellow must submit an application form and a two-page summary describing the project they are interested in pursuing. A select number of applicant organizations will be advanced to the full proposal and candidate recruitment phases. Stoneleigh will interview the top two finalists from candidate recruitment and engage in a collaborative process with each host organization to select final candidates for its Board of Directors’ approval. The application period for organizations and candidates interested in an Emerging Leader Fellow is now closed. Applications for the 2025-2027 Fellowship cycle will open in Fall 2024.
