Program: Leadership Grant Program
Agency: Switzer (Robert and Patricia) Foundation
Deadline: 9/1/2013
Description: The Switzer Leadership Grant Program will advance the professional careers of Switzer Fellows and give non-profit organizations, educational institutions and government agencies access to individuals with superior technical, scientific or policy expertise, while working in partnership to build the Fellows leadership skills by providing salary and project expenses for Fellows of up to $40,000 for one year.

Upcoming deadlines are 02/01/2013 and 09/01/2013. Leadership grant proposals are to be written collaboratively between the Switzer Fellow and the applicant organization. No proposals will be considered from an organization that has not made direct contact, and developed the specifics of the proposal, with a Switzer Fellow. Once an organization and a Fellow have made contact and agree to pursue a Leadership Grant project, the organization must contact the Switzer Foundation by phone or e-mail to discuss the anticipated project before proceeding with the proposal process. Concept letters are accepted in the Spring by February 1st, and in the Fall by September 1st. Proposal materials should be submitted electronically to: Erin Lloyd, Program Officer
