2013 Penn Summer Fellows Program (for doctoral students)

Speaking of developing professional and intellectual ties with colleagues, here’s a great opportunity for doctoral students to meet and work alongside colleagues who are working on “nonprofit organizations, voluntary action, philanthropy and international civil society.”

This summer program is led by UPenn Prof. Peter Frumkin, whose publications include On Being Nonprofit (Harvard University Press, 2002), Serving Country and Community: Who Benefits from National Service (co-authored with JoAnn Jastrzab, Harvard, 2010), The Essence of Strategic Giving: A Practical Guide for Donors and Fundraisers (University of Chicago Press, 2010), and The Strategic Management of Charter Schools (co-authored with Bruno Manno and Nell Edgington, Harvard Education Press 2011).

  1. Wonderful opportunity! However, I cannot find a link to the actual summer program on the website or in this post? I am, admittedly, halfway through grading 120 essays so I may be missing it.

  3. No link was provided in the announcement that I saw. Peter recently joined UPenn from UTAustin, so checking out the RGK Center Summer Fellowship at UTAustin might be informative for understanding what the UPenn Summer Fellows format might look like:
