Open Society Foundations’ Youth Exchange Fellowship - for USA - Last date 7 April 2017

Funds for NGOs

Activities: Youth,Others

The Open Society Foundations’ Youth Exchange, in partnership with the Human Rights Initiative, seeks applicants for its Community Youth Fellowships. The fellowships come with an award of up to $60,000 for full-time, 18-month projects (prorated for part-time or 12-month projects).

The Community Youth Fellowships will support dynamic activists aged 18-25 who want to implement a project of their own design that advances human rights anywhere in the United States.  This opportunity is specifically for young persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Successful applicants should demonstrate a connection to the community in which they will be based.  Human rights projects could include those relating to criminal justice, workers’ rights, employment, education, health, housing, or immigration, among other subject areas.

Through these fellowships, the Open Society Foundations aim to provide young people at the early stage of their work with the support they need to develop great ideas that contribute to dismantle challenges in their communities and advance the values of an open society. Applicants may employ, either alone or in combination, any number of strategies to achieve the goals and objectives set forth in their projects.  These strategies include but are not limited to:  grassroots organizing, public education, strategic communications, policy advocacy, and coalition building. 

Eligibility Criteria:Applicants should be young persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities between the ages of 18 and 25. Their proposed projects must focus on human rights in the United States.

Applicants must be at the earliest stages of their careers, have and want to learn more about what it takes to be most effective as an activist. Applicants directly affected by, or with significant direct personal experience of, the challenges, policies, practices, and systems their projects seek to address are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with intellectual and developmental disabilities are also strongly encouraged to apply regardless of support required. Effective and meaningful support will be provided to ensure the candidate is successful.
