Applying for an Emerging Leader Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in the Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship! As the first step in our process, we ask organizations interested in hosting a Fellow to submit a project abstract.

  • About Your Organization: Briefly describe your organization and its mission.
  • Problem Statement: Clearly describe the problem the Emerging Leader Fellow will focus on and why it is significant. Explain how the project fits with the mission of your organization.
  • Project Description: Describe the design, scope, and overall goals and deliverables of the project. Explain how it addresses the problem statement and how it will add value to the field.
  • Emerging Leader Fellow: Describe how the Emerging Leader Fellow will benefit from leading this project. Indicate any specific knowledge or skills the Fellow will need to complete this work.


The application period for organizations interested in hosting a 2019-21 Emerging Leader Fellow is now closed.

Individuals who are interested in becoming an Emerging Leader Fellow can begin applying for opportunities on November 12, 2018. Please check back for additional details at that time.
