The Casey Foundation solicits nominations for the Children and Family Fellowship from a prestigious, national network of organizations and individuals who lead many of the most dynamic systems, institutions and programs in America today. Their wide spheres of influence throughout the public, nonprofit and private sectors uniquely position them to identify the talented leaders sought by the Children and Family Fellowship.
Once nominated, candidates are invited to complete a Fellowship application. The Fellowship selection committee, composed of a diverse team of Casey staff, Fellowship alumni and partners in the Foundation’s work, reviews all applications and recommends candidates for further consideration.
Candidates also may apply directly. A nomination is not a prerequisite.
Special attention will be given to candidates with significant ties to the places, organizations and areas of interest in which the Foundation invests, although pre-existing relationships with the Foundation are not a prerequisite. Personal references are then sought and reviewed. The committee selects a small number of finalists who are invited to a series of interviews and group activities. Final selection of Children and Family Fellows is announced following the interviews.
