Request a Grant Writer

Fellowship opportunity for New York individuals from nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and safety net organizations in eligible counties to address the needs of young children and elderly adults affected by poverty. This program is intended to create and enhance networking and collaboration opportunities among leaders in this field. Each cohort of fellows is made up of professionals from organizations throughout western and central New York, including the counties of Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, Wyoming, Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, and Tompkins.

The Health Foundation is now accepting applications for Health Leadership Fellows Cohort 10. The continuing COVID-19 crisis illustrates the importance of ensuring that health care leaders are supported and provided opportunities to grow, collaborate and develop new levels of expertise. In light of ongoing health regulations, some aspects of the program will be delivered in a re-imagined way to ensure the safety of all participants, but the Foundation is committed to providing a valuable and effective program for the newest Fellows.

The intensive 18-month program includes four two- to three-day residential sessions on topics including personal leadership, leading change, communicating as a leader and results-based leadership and collaboration. Ongoing learning happens between sessions, where fellows work together on an inter-organizational project in small teams. Each fellow also gets executive coaching and access to the program’s learning materials.
