The San Francisco Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2012-2014 Multicultural Fellowship Program. As a member of our community, we value your support, and invite you to help us identify strong candidates to apply.
Our Multicultural Fellowship Program is a two-year, full-time program that aims to increase diversity in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors. Successful candidates are young professionals of color with the promise and passion to create significant social change. The Fellowship provides challenging work and professional development experiences, on-the-job training, and opportunities to enhance skills in grantmaking, convening, project management, and a variety of other areas. Fellows are an integral component of the Foundation’s grantmaking Program staff. Additionally, Fellows benefit from networking, mentoring, trainings, seminars, professional conferences, and interactions with a wide array of nonprofit, community, and philanthropic leaders.
The Multicultural Fellowship Program seeks three Fellows with expertise in the following areas: Community Development, Education, and Environment. The deadline to apply is by 5:30 p.m. PST on Friday, March 9, 2012. The Fellowship positions begin on July 2, 2012.
