Professional Fundraising Fellowships

Summer School leaflet cover - squareWe’ve created the Professional Fundraising Fellowship programme to support arts and cultural professionals at an early to middle stage in their careers to become confident, skilled, entrepreneurial fundraisers, either as development specialists or as specialists in other roles where fundraising is an important strand of their work.

Ten Fellows will be recruited from across England in early 2017, and begin their Fellowship year on the 1st June 2017.  They can continue within their current full-time employment and undertake the Fellowship as an exceptional Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunity, with the support of their employer.

Their learning programme will include participating in the University of Leeds National Summer School in Arts Fundraising & Leadership in July 2017, and working towards achieving the University’s Postgraduate Certificate in Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy.

For further background, please read Amanda Rigali’s blog on why we’re running a Professional Fellowships programme.

The deadline for applications to the programme has now closed.  We will be announcing information on our successful candidates in May 2017.
