Applications Now Being Accepted For The 2013 Ford Motor Company International Fellowship


An advocate for ten million Indian rickshaw operators. A concert producer who brings music into the lives of Venezuela’s impoverished youth. And three young Vietnamese entrepreneurs who have devised a plan to create environmentally-friendly fuel. Those were just some of the humanitarian leaders and community activists who participated in the eleventh annual Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of the 92nd Street Y. Read what past participants have said about the program, and check out the Ford Fellows playlist on our YouTube channel to learn more about the program.

The 2013 Ford Motor Company International Fellowship of 92nd Street Y is now accepting applications from community leaders who are citizens and residents of China, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, India, Israel, Lesotho, Nepal, Nicaragua, South Africa, and Swaziland. Applications must be postmarked, faxed, or emailed by June 30, 2012 to be considered.  For more information, please visit our website at To download the application and brochure, visit the “2013 Application and Brochure”. 

This annual fellowship is funded by the Ford Motor Company Fund and organized by 92nd Street Y to provide education and support to community leaders engaged in the nonprofit sector. To date, more than 255 individuals from more than 65 countries have received the Ford Fellowship, which is now in its thirteenth year. The residency takes place May 29–June 19, 2013 in New York City.  Airfare, accommodation, food, transportation, instruction, and other program-related expenses are included in the fellowship, and participants receive a small stipend upon arrival.

During the intensive three-week residency, Ford Fellows take classes in areas including nonprofit management strategy and leadership at Columbia University’s Picker Center for Executive Education. The academic curriculum is complemented by visits to model nonprofits in New York City and meetings with academic, business, and government leaders. The experience is enhanced by Fellows’ residency at 92nd Street Y, a Jewish community and cultural center founded in 1874 that annually serves over 300,000 people of all national, ethnic, religious, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds.
