Center for Public Leadership, New Social Enterprise Fellowship Featured in The New York Times

August 24, 2005

A major new fellowship program in social entrepreneurship at Harvard University is profiled in the August 17 edition of The New York Times. The program, funded by a $10 million gift from the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation, is designed to eliminate financial barriers for graduate students poised to become leaders in confronting difficult public policy challenges by crossing boundaries between commerce and academia.

Reynolds Fellows will engage in a range of activities at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard School of Public Health, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In addition to their formal graduate work, Reynolds Foundation Fellows will participate in an innovative, cross-disciplinary program designed and hosted by the Kennedy School's Center for Public Leadership. Co-curricular activities will include special speakers, study groups, as well as leadership skill-building workshops taught by Billy Shore, founder of the anti-hunger initiative Share Our Strength; Shalom Saar, senior fellow at Center for Public Leadership; and Gordon Bloom, director of the Social Entrepreneurship Collaboratory at the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations.
