The Clinton School of Public Service Center on Community Philanthropy will offer its Philanthropy Visiting Scholar for the second time this fall to explore a community philanthropy approach to racial healing. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, July 12.
The Center on Community Philanthropy prefers that visiting scholar applicants are post doctoral, an assistant professor, or a senior level practitioner with a terminal degree. In order to be considered for selection, applicants should submit an application form, a curriculum vitae, research or work plan, and recommendation letters.
The visiting scholar will pursue a research project that will explore a community philanthropy approach to racial healing. The goal is to eliminate discrepancies by promoting inclusion, equity, and social justice.
The Clinton School also expects scholars to engage in the activities of the Center on Community Philanthropy, interact with students in the classroom, present an update of the project at least once during the semester to the students and faculty of the Clinton School of Public Service and submit an end of project report ready for submission to a national level journal.
As stated in the Community Philanthropy Visiting Scholar Program announcement, scholars will be accommodated with a stipend up to $65,000 and some funds to assist with travel expenses.
Nominations and applications should be sent to Charlotte L. Williams, Associate Professor and Director of the Center on Community Philanthropy at University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, Sturgis Hall, 1200 President Clinton Avenue, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201.
