Adamah Fellowship: Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center
March

http://isabellafreedman.org/adamah/fellowship

A three or six month leadership training program for Jewish young adults — ages 20–29 — that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, teaching, and contemplative spiritual practice.  Fellows develop an intimate connection to the New England landscape and its agricultural rhythms. They leave the program with both practical farming skills and a deep visceral understanding of how the combination of soil, sun, water, nutrients, and hard labor conspire to form the sustenance of our lives. They also learn how current modern agricultural practices undermine our planet's long-term ability to support life. In addition to agriculture, Fellows are given the opportunity to learn many other aspects of sustainability in elective courses. Specific courses depend on faculty expertise and Fellow interest in any given ADAMAH season. Fellows receive full room, board, limited health care, and a $500 per person stipend which is paid at the conclusion of the Fellowship season. Fellowship open to Jewish young adults.

Global Engagement Summer Institute
March

The Global Engagement Summer Institute is for undergraduates who are passionately committed to global justice and international development. Run by Northwestern University’s Center for Global Engagement and supported abroad by the Foundation for Sustainable Development, the Global Engagement Summer Institute program will bring together students from universities around the country to learn from and work with communities in India, Uganda, Bolivia and Nicaragua experiencing the problems of poverty and injustice.

Going beyond traditional study abroad experiences, the program will place you in a team setting with a host nonprofit organization where you’ll learn about international community development by developing and implementing a real project in areas from youth education to microfinance and beyond.

GESI is a two-course summer study abroad program focused on teaching students about community development in a global context. The program focuses in part on Asset-based Community Development a framework for harnessing the resources of individuals and communities to ensure local ownership and sustainability of development efforts.

GESI recognizes that every individual is instilled with experiences, knowledge, and values that can enrich a team. Students come from various universities and academic programs to work in groups of four to six, a structure that allows them to harness their diversity as well as develop their ability to collaborate and cooperate cross-culturally. GESI has sent nearly 100 students from around the world to work in team based community development in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

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.

Piedmont Environmental Council Fellowship Program
March

http://www.pecva.org/anx/index.cfm/1,220,0,0,html/Fellowship-Program

The Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation organization, community planning resource and regional land trust founded in 1972 to promote and protect the Virginia Piedmont's rural economy, natural resources, history and beauty. The seven-week PEC Fellowship program is designed to provide college students and recent graduates with comprehensive exposure to PEC's work in the Piedmont region and Virginia.

The Fellowship Program is an experiential educational opportunity for college and graduate students, sharing PEC's uniquely successful model for land conservation and smart growth planning. The Fellowship Program embodies PEC's mission to build better communities by introducing future leaders to an important framework for positive community action and environmental protection.

Fellows will experience a hands-on approach to learning about PEC through field-trips, classroom discussions, and individual practicum projects. Wherever possible, classroom lessons are followed with practical applications and field trips. During the 2008 program, morning lectures on land conservation and farmland preservation were followed by field trips to three farms to hear directly from land owners and work side-by-side with farmers.

Over the course of the seven weeks, Fellows are exposed to PEC's broad based strategy which includes lessons and activities in land conservation, agriculture, smart growth, communications, grassroots advocacy, internet technology, GIS mapping, and community outreach. Fellows learn directly from PEC staff members and partners, both in the classroom and field; and complete an individual practicum related to personal interests with a staff mentor.

PEC's Fellowship Program welcomes applicants from a variety of academic fields. Previous fellowship applicants have represented a variety of courses of study, including environmental science, government, economics, human & environmental relations, historic preservation, anthropology, geography, and more.
