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.

Spotlight on Leadership

Fellow Daniel Swain's research focuses on the causes of persistent patterns in the atmosphere—like the ones that cause drought or exceptional rain in California—and how climate change might be affecting them. In his spare time, the 25-year-old Marin native runs the California Weather Blog (weatherwest.com), a must-read for weather nerds where he comments on statewide weather patterns and their big-picture causes. He’s also the one who gave the name “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge” to the pattern that’s being blamed for our three years of drought.Read more >
