Insight Fellowship
January

http://www.insightcollaborative.org/ic_2009/

Insight Collaborative, a non-profit organization focusing on conflict resolution, was developed to foster a community of global-minded individuals prepared to contribute more effectively to their local, national, and international communities. The Program awards one-year Fellowships to exceptional individuals to

  • Study and promote effective conflict management
  • Make international humanitarian contributions
  • Pursue self-reflection and personal development

The Fellowship includes a $25,000 expense allowance to support multiple placements totaling one year, typically in 3-4 month blocks. (Each Fellow is required to repay the amount of the $25,000 allowance used through individual fund raising efforts, regenerating the funds to ensure support for the next Fellow. This “pay forward” approach instills the values of sustainability and non-profit entrepreneurship.) The first three months take place at the Boston offices of the Insight Collaborative, where Fellows advance their understanding of the theory and practice of effective negotiation, communication, and mediation. The remaining nine months of the Fellowship are divided into foreign placements proposed by the Fellow.
