The Morgridge Acceleration Program (MAP) Fellowship matches emerging leaders with non-profits looking to create long-term and positive impact, while developing professional skill sets and networks. The MAP Fellowship’s unique alchemy is its focus on experiential co-learning to empower strategic growth. Harnessing the passion of nonprofit work, the program cultivates tomorrow’s leaders, challenging them to think differently, work strategically, and innovate solutions.
The 2020 Fellowship has concluded and we look forward to seeking applicants for the next cohort in early summer 2021. Details on the previous cohort of MAP Mentors, Fellows, and challenges can be found below.
The 2020 MAP Fellow cohort comprises future social-sector leaders who have demonstrated remarkable personal and professional accomplishment early in their careers. Chosen from an impressive pool of applicants, each Fellow possess a passion for generating new ideas, a craving for collaboration, and the desire to create long-lasting impact.
The MAP Mentors are leaders in their field. During the program, they will collaborate with their selected Fellow to drive effective and innovative solutions to the challenges posed.
Each Fellow pledges approximately 10 hours a month, or 60 hours total, throughout the duration of the program to collaborating with their Mentor. All expenses and experiences associated with the MAP Fellowship are fully funded by MFF, including travel, accommodations, meals, and a two-day site visit to their Mentor’s organization. Additionally, each Fellow receives sessions with an executive coach as well as a generous stipend to be used for a shared learning experience with their Mentor.
The MAP Fellowship serves as an extension of MFF’s mission, which is to invest in organizations and leaders that are reimagining solutions to today’s biggest challenges. The Fellowship fosters new and meaningful connections, amplifies awareness of important causes, and sparks profound and lasting impact.
