Launched in 2001, the Leadership Fellows program has placed 223 Fellows with 87 organizations, with a focus on two key objectives:

  • Providing social-sector organizations with access to analytic and strategic talent to deliver high-impact results
  • Encouraging emerging leaders to develop an appreciation for and understanding of the complexities of leading in the social sector

How does the Fellowship work?

Hiring organizations are selected through a competitive process based on the scope and nature of the position and on the capacity of the organization to utilize a Fellow's leadership and management skills. Fellows are chosen by the hiring organizations through a standard interview process. Organizations pay Fellows a $50,000 salary and HBS awards Fellows a one-year grant of $50,000.
