Leadership Grant Program - Leadership Exchange

The Leadership Exchange is a service designed to help connect organizations with Switzer Fellows for development of a Leadership Grant proposal.  Eligible organizations (non-profits, public agencies and educational institutions) interested in connecting with a Switzer Fellow should contact Erin Lloyd, Program Director, to discuss ideas for posting in this section.  Interested organizations are encouraged to view the current postings on the Exchange to become familiar with the format and content.  It is best to prepare a concise summary of the project and skills needed.  Switzer program staff will then post the listing to the Exchange and publicize the opportunity with Fellows.

Organizations are also encouraged to search the Find an Expert section to view Switzer Fellows working on your particular issue.

All organizations and Fellows interested in the Leadership Grant Program are strongly urged to review the guidelines before proceeding with a Leadership Exchange posting.
