The Fellows Program offers outstanding nonprofit executive leaders the opportunity to spend a year developing professionally and personally while expanding their leadership skills. With a grant of up to $5,000, executives can pursue their development and connect with other executives during regular workshop sessions throughout the year.

The selection committee seeks applicants with strong and relevant professional and personal goals. Priority is given to applicants that have:
  • Demonstrated strategic leadership in one’s field.
  • Demonstrated a collaborative approach to leadership within the York Community.
  • A number of years of leadership with current or prior nonprofit, educational or governmental institutions.
  • Plans that meaningfully increase the applicant’s capacity as a leader in the community both professionally and personally.
  • Programs which stretch boundaries or are otherwise unattainable without the fellowship.
  • Plans that will add value to the executive’s nonprofit and the York County community.
