Morgan Stanley Fellowship
Morgan Stanley/ANHD Community Development Fellowship
A new generation of leaders:
In 2012, ANHD partnered with Morgan Stanley to create a new yearly community development fellowship that matches top-level local masters degree students with a local community development organization to carry out a specific project that the group could not otherwise accomplish. The goal of the Morgan Stanley/ANHD Fellowship is to bring the next generation of community development leaders into our field.
The Morgan Stanley/ANHD Community Development Fellowship, has had a very successful first year, with eight fellows across four boroughs doing innovative projects ranging from making affordable housing more energy efficient on the Upper West Side, to working with small businesses in East New York, to helping develop a new South Asian community center in Jackson Heights.

Apply to be a Host Site in 2013 / 2014 - Fellowship Application
We are proud to announce that, in conjunction with Morgan Stanley, we are continuing the Fellowship for 2013-2014. Applications for host groups and Fellows are now open. The deadline for proposals to host a Fellow is May 17th, 2013. If you want to be considered to be a Host Group for a Fellow, please take a look at the attached RFP.
Many ANHD member groups have a compelling, high-impact community development project, or an idea for a project, that needs extra support to get off the ground. The staff and board of ANHD created the Morgan Stanley/ANHD Community Development Fellowship to help fill that need. The Fellowship is designed to increase the capacity of New York City’s neighborhood-based community development organizations, and to create a pipeline for the next generation of community development leaders. All ANHD member organizations with a compelling community development project are encouraged to apply.
The Fellowship will individually pair eight high-level Master’s Degree students in Urban Planning, Urban Policy, Public Administration, or a related field with eight high-performing Host Groups. The Fellows will each receive an $18,000 stipend to serve in a part-time (20 hours/week), two-semester-long (September 1st – June 30th) fellowship with the Host Group. Host groups contribute $4,000 to the cost of the program. Each Fellow will be responsible for a significant role in advancing a distinct, high-impact community project. The application processes for both Host Groups and Fellows will be competitive. ANHD member organizations applying to be a Host Group must present a compelling project on which the Fellow will work, and will be selected by a committee of Community Development experts. ANHD will select a pool of qualified applicants to serve as Fellows. The selected Host Groups will interview the Fellows in June and have an opportunity to indicate their preferred candidate. The program will start at the beginning of September, and run through June 30th.

ANHD is very appreciative of Morgan Stanley for continuing their partnership in this exciting new program.
