The Duke Endowment is inviting applications for its 2017-2019 Fellowship Program, which focuses on improving the delivery of education, health care and child care services.

Created in 2005, the program exposes emerging leaders to all aspects of philanthropy in the endowment’s four program areas — child care, health care, higher education, and rural church — and provides them with an opportunity to learn about an array of issues confronting Carolinians and the Carolinas.
The fellowship is a two-year full-time assignment and, in addition to an annual salary and benefits, provides fellows with access to the endowment’s executive leadership and a variety of personalized professional development opportunities. Participants in the program learn on the fly and are expected to think creatively to provide meaningful contributions and new perspectives to endowment leadership Fellows typically begin their work at the endowment between July 15 and Aug. 1.

Fellows also receive full benefits, including life, medical and dental insurance, wellness benefits, and participation in a 401(k) plan. In addition, fellows receive a stipend for moving expenses and travel reimbursement (moderate travel is required).
