The Kip Tiernan Social Justice Fellowship honors the life-long work of the founder of Rosie’s Place.
The Fellowship provides a unique and exciting opportunity for a woman to develop and carry out a special project that will further the mission of Rosie’s Place anywhere in New England. Eligible projects could include: a policy initiative or campaign; a creative arts program; the development and implementation of a needed service; or the creation of an innovative project aimed at reducing poverty, promoting social justice and empowering poor and homeless women.
The Fellowship is 12 months long and is awarded on a one-time basis to an eligible woman. Fellows are paid a $40,000 stipend.
Fellowship applications are due by December 1st. The winner is selected in the spring by a comittee comprised of members of the Rosie’s Place community. The Fellowship begins the following summer/fall.
Information sessions are offered in person and via conference call each fall. The information session will be held on Wednesday, October 22 at 6:00 p.m. at Rosie’s Place. The conference call session will be held on Tuesday, October 28 at 6:00 p.m. Please contact Rosie’s Place Executive Director Sue Marsh for any additional questions.
