Pursuing a Career in the Nonprofit Sector?
This summer, the Scott/Ross Center Fellowship in Nonprofit Management provided three Simmons students an opportunity to explore nonprofit management to learn if this was a potential career path for them.
In addition to spending over two weeks at an intensive immersion in philanthropy and grant making at the Boston Foundation, the Fellows completed an additional six weeks with six Boston area nonprofits undertaking grant research and writing, program development and evaluation. They also had the opportunity to meet with staff at all levels, attend staff meetings and national and regional conferences.
