Morgan Stanley Community Development Graduate Fellowship
A new generation of leaders
In 2012, ANHD partnered with Morgan Stanley to create a new yearly community development fellowship that matches top-level local masters degree students with a local community development organization to carry out a specific project that the group could not otherwise accomplish. The goal of the Morgan Stanley/ANHD Fellowship is to bring the next generation of community development leaders into our field. The Morgan Stanley/ANHD Community Development Fellowship, has had a very successful first three years, with 25 fellows across four boroughs doing innovative projects ranging from making affordable housing more energy efficient on the Upper West Side, to working with small businesses in East New York, to helping develop a new South Asian community center in Jackson Heights. The first three cohorts also had a 100% employment success rate, with many moving into government positions for city planning.
Our 2017-2018 Application Cycle is now open! Applications are due no later than Friday, April 7th, 2017.
To host a 2017-2018 Fellow, fill out a Host Organization Application. All ANHD member organizations with a compelling community development project are encouraged to apply, including those who have housed a Fellow in the past. We have had 18 groups in 4 different boroughs take advantage of the program so far, with projects involving affordable housing, industrial retention and support, healthy food, community centers, storm resiliency, and several different green and energy efficiency projects. The program typically runs from beginning of September to June 30th. As a reminder, Host Organizations must make the potential Fellow’s Supervisor available all day for interviews, and the date will be announced later. The selected Host Groups will indicate their preferred candidates, and ANHD will match accordingly. Please contact Stephanie Sosa at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the Fellowship, the RFP, or the timeline.
for making this program possible.
