Social Innovation Fellowship

Six times per year, New Seneca Village will invite strategic cohorts of up to 20 leaders to come together for 10-day invitational residencies offering enhanced restoration and vision focused programming in support of connecting and resourcing leaders working on related issues.

 

Seed funding of up to $30k will be provided to support projects resulting from these Fellowships.

 

Fellowships will be  open to all invited leaders regardless of race and gender. We will serve up to 120 Fellows annually.

Innovation Fellows

New Seneca Village will sustain a minimum of 5 Innovation Leaders annually, providing them with a stipend of $200k.

 

The goal of the Innovation Fellows program is to acknowledge the work of social justice leaders while providing them with the resources to access time, space, creativity and purpose.  

 

Innovation Fellows will be nominated and chosen by New Seneca Villagers.
