Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellowship

The Nathan Cummings Foundation

 

Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellowship

 The Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellowship supports visionary leaders by giving them boundless space to turn an inspired idea in the field of social justice into a world-changing reality. The Fellowship awards three individuals up to $150,000 each to pursue an innovative project that seeks to address a challenge related to climate change or inequality – or within the intersection of these two major issues. An NCF Fellowship must align with at least one of the Foundation’s core focus areas: Inclusive Clean Economy; Racial and Economic Justice; Corporate and Political Accountability; and Voice, Creativity and Culture.

The 2017 fellows are: Francisca Porchas Coronado, who is building healing, resilience and restoration for immigrant communities through Seeds of Resilience; Anna Claussen, who is engaging rural communities on climate change through national Voices for Rural Resiliency; and Jasiri X, who is training artists to become advocates for social justice through the 1Hood Artivist Academy.
