Leaders from health and social care organizations serving young children and older adults, especially those in under-resourced communities, are encouraged to apply to the next cohort of Health Leadership Fellows.
What is the Health Leadership Fellows program?
Most nonprofit professionals would agree: a strong, diverse network of leaders is necessary to achieve our collective goals and create a healthy and equitable western and central New York.
To build that network of skilled leaders who will take on these challenges together, the Health Foundation created the Health Leadership Fellows program in 2005. One of our earliest and longest-running programs, the Fellows program has strengthened collaboration among hundreds of nonprofit professionals.
Applications for Cohort 11 of the Health Leadership Fellows program are now open. Applications are due on November 21, 2023. Interviews will begin late 2023 and continue into early 2024, and the program will begin in June 2024.
Who Should Apply
The program is designed for current leaders of health-related nonprofit or safety net organizations that address the needs of older adults or young children impacted by poverty, ideally with an organizational commitment to racial and/or socioeconomic equity. Applicants must be in leadership roles, with tenure of at least five years in a management role, and have a strong commitment to and involvement with their local community. Please explore the Fellows web page to more fully understand the time commitment expected of participants.
People who are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or from other under-represented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please note that independent consultants do not meet eligibility criteria for this program.
