Applications Invited for the:

The International Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship 2020
Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Graduate Program
School of Public Policy and Administration
Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

 If you are coming to ISTR in Montreal, this fellowship is an opportunity to extend your stay in Canada, and engage with the faculty and students in Canada’s only Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership

 The Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership (MPNL) attracts a cohort of national and international students – a mix of aspiring and experienced professionals – who enter the program by spending two weeks on campus in July to undertake an executive-style Summer Institute. They then complete the program through a series of online courses and intensive one-week sessions:

The International Scholar-in-Residence Award enables a scholar with an active research agenda related to philanthropy and the nonprofit/charitable sector to spend at least a month in Ottawa, interacting with the faculty and students prior to, during and after the two-week Summer Institute. The recipient is expected to: contribute to (but not deliver) the Summer Institute courses, for example by providing some guest lectures and participating in class discussions; engage with students and faculty on research ideas; and give a public lecture or participate in a panel discussion.

With about 60 graduate students attending the Summer Institute, and many other sector leaders invited to present in classes, the Award is a great opportunity to share ideas and experiences from the recipient’s home country, and learn about developments in the philanthropy and nonprofit sector in Canada.  The courses offered during the Summer Institute are:

  • Foundations of Philanthropy
  • Policy and Legal Environment
  • Governance and Leadership
  • Organizational Development

We particularly welcome applicants with an interest in one of these (broad) topics and/or with the research interests of the PNL faculty.  The dates of the 2020 Summer Institute are July 13-24 (the two weeks following ISTR).

The position is non-stipendiary but a generous travel and accommodation allowance is provided.

For more information, please email:  Susan Phillips, Professor and Graduate Supervisor

Applicants please send a statement of interest and cv by December 15, 2019 to: Calum Carmichael, Director, School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University
