Baltimore
Community Fellows

The Open Society Institute-Baltimore launched the Community Fellowships network in 1998. It is now a corps of social innovators 180 strong. The program seeks dynamic activists and social entrepreneurs interested in implementing projects that address problems in underserved communities in Baltimore City. Fellowship awards are in the amount of $60,000 for a term of 18 months.

The program includes the following priorities:

Recruit, select and support dynamic, resourceful and committed social entrepreneurs to become Baltimore Community Fellows.

ENHANCE EACH FELLOW’S WORK

Offer technical assistance and capacity-building resources to increase the impact of the Fellow’s work.

CREATE A DYNAMIC NETWORK

Support network-weaving activities that strengthen the connections of the Fellows to one another and that encourage collaboration.
