Allan Thomas Fellowship

The Carold Institute is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2015 Alan Thomas Fellowship to Promote Civil Society and Voluntary Action. Awarded for the first time in 2008, this initiative is aimed at strengthening leadership for civil society and promoting greater understanding of the significance of voluntary action.

The Fellowship will again be awarded each year to a leader in the NGO/non-profit sector who would not normally have access to a sabbatical leave. Valued at a maximum amount of $60,000 for up to one year, the award is intended to allow the recipient, at a transitional moment in his or her career, to make a significant contribution to the sector, through research and reflection, leading to possible publication, or dissemination in another medium.

The award is designed to support individual leaders and build a broader network of researchers and practitioners.

Visit the Carold Institute website for fuller details on the Fellowship and past recipients. For additional copies of the print version of the information brochure or for further information, please contact Juliet Huntly at the address below.

The Carold Institute for the Advancement of Citizenship in Social Change was established in 1989 with an endowment from Ms. Clare Clark, a long-time participant in and advocate for voluntary organizations in Canada. Clare Clark was an active volunteer in the Canadian Association for Adult Education (CAAE) for more than 20 years and developed a profound understanding of the connection between adult education and citizen participation in civil society. This appreciation remained with her for the rest of her life. Her legacy was the Carold Institute whose programs are focused on furthering the understanding of voluntary action and voluntary organizations in Canada.

Deadline for submission is March 27, 2015.
