Leadership Grant Program - How to Apply

The Switzer Foundation is not currently accepting concepts or proposals under the Leadership Grant Program. Interested parties should contact Erin Lloyd, Program Director, with questions. Please refer to the following guidelines for general information about the program and the proposal process.

Eligibility - Who Can Apply

U.S.-based nonprofit 501(c) (3) organizations with public charity status, public agencies and educational institutions which aim to employ a Switzer Fellow in a substantive leadership role are eligible to apply. (See ‘Recent Recipients’ for a summary of organizations that have received Leadership Grants in the past.) The project or position must have an applied focus that will yield positive environmental change. Support for fellows doing international work may be considered as long as a U.S.-based host organization is the grantee and all other criteria are met.
