The Center operates an annual summer doctoral fellows program open to a highly select group of Ph.D. students from around the world.
Under the direction of Peter Frumkin, top doctoral students will work on their own research in nonprofit management, volunteerism, international civil society, social entrepreneurship, and philanthropic studies. At the conclusion of the experience, the doctoral students will have produced papers ready for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Based on the success of summer doctoral fellowship program that Frumkin has run for seven years with great success, the Center’s program will continue to be a key stepping stone for the best new scholarly talent.
The 2017 Penn Summer Doctoral Fellows Program will be hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Nonprofit Leadership (NPL) Program.
Applicants will be expected to submit a draft research paper that they would like to refine and prepare for publication during the course of the program. Housing near the Penn campus and stipends are provided to all Summer Fellows. The program will be held from June 5 – 28, 2017 at the University of Pennsylvania.
