Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

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.
