KNIGHT PUBLIC SPACES FELLOWS: LEADING CHANGE, CONNECTING PEOPLE TO PLACE
Knight Foundation is inviting nominations for its inaugural Knight Public Spaces Fellowship.
The fellowship recognizes leading civic innovators who have created or influenced great public spaces in U.S. communities, creating more opportunities for connection and civic engagement. Chosen fellows will share up to $1 million in grants to continue their work.
From Feb. 21 to March 22 at 11:59 p.m. ET, we are inviting people to nominate their candidate of choice. Individuals can also nominate themselves. Those who choose to nominate a candidate are encouraged to alert the nominee about the opportunity.
In addition to the opportunity to create real impact in their city and beyond, fellows will receive:
Support: A small group of fellows will share up to $1 million grants which can be used for innovative, flexible projects, distributed over approximately two years.
Network-building opportunities: Support to work directly with peers and other experts who are passionate about using public space to transform communities.
Mentorship: Insight and guidance from experts to refine ideas and new thinking around public space work.
Public exposure: Fellows will be invited to present at Knight-supported events and other gatherings, and given opportunities to publish and share their work.
