In partnership with the John Ben Snow Foundation, the Maxwell School provides two fellowships to incoming MPA students with commitments to careers in Non-Profit Management.  In conjunction with their studies, the Snow Fellows serve up to 16 hours per week over the academic year at the CNY Community Foundation. In these roles they gain vital experience in the areas of community grant making, non-profit financial management, program evaluation and implementation – taking what they learn in the classroom out into the community.

The John Ben Snow and Vernon Snow Fellows in Non-Profit Management are named in a collaborative process between the Maxwell School’ s PAIA department and the Central New York Community Foundation.  The Snow Foundation provides an ample stipend of $15,000 which is disbursed monthly over the Fellows 12 months of study. In turn Syracuse University and the Maxwell School provide a full 40 credit tuition scholarship. The aim of the Snow Fellowships in Non-Profit Management is to provide talented young professionals with a commitment to careers in this sector, added exposure to this professional field, valuable skills through their studies, and the ability to explore positions in this sector upon graduation without the worry of educational debt.

To be considered for a Snow Fellowship award a separate letter of application is necessary. This letter should summarize your background and interests in non-profit management and state your commitment to enter this field upon graduation. Please enclose a resume/curricula vita with the letter and address it to: The Snow Fellowship Selection Committee, c/o the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs, 215 Eggers Hall, Syracuse, NY 13244. You may include this letter with your application. Deadline for consideration is February 15.
