Hi Peter,
I'm writing to ask for your help with a new initiative of the All Stars Project. It's a post-graduate fellowship program called the Fulani Fellows, made possible by a recent grant the All Stars received. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide the opportunity to work directly with developmental psychologist, activist and grassroots educator, Lenora Fulani, in her many projects that incorporate new ways of addressing poverty, human development and public policy.
I 'm hoping that you can help us connect with interested and qualified candidates for both a program manager and the fellows themselves.
The program manager will be responsible for recruitment of the fellows and the selection process, as well as the day-to-day operations of the program. I thought that you might be able to recommend some candidates for this position in addition to getting the job description (attached) out to your network.
The Fulani Fellows will participate in a 5-month program of immersion in the on-the-ground practice, methodology and theory employed in the programs and practices that Dr. Fulani has helped to create and build. Ideal candidates for this paid fellowship are recent graduates of masters and doctoral programs, graduate students, and faculty in the fields of education, psychology, cultural anthropology, social work, youth development, applied theater, poverty, public policy - or the equivalent life experience.
The All Stars will place three fellows in each of three cycles, the first beginning in January 2016. If you know of anyone who would make a strong Fulani Fellow program manager or fellowship candidate, you can have them reach Sarah Plotkin at 212-356-8431, splotkin@allstars.org<mailto:splotkin@allstars.org> to initiate the process.
Thanks in advance for your support as the All Stars Project launches this important and exciting new initiative. Your help in distributing the job description - we need our program manager in place before we can select our fellows - and in keeping an eye out for candidates to become Fulani Fellows, is invaluable.
All best,
Lois
