The Vodafone New Zealand Foundation, in association with SYHPANZ (Society of Youth Health Professionals Aotearoa New Zealand) is proud to offer the third Fellowship in Youth Health Leadership and is calling for applications from today. Applications close Friday 1st June, at 5pm

The Vodafone Foundation’s vision is to promote the health and wellbeing of young New Zealanders.

The Fellowship is a leadership development grant that has been established for promising mid-career youth sector practitioners or researchers with proven leadership and experience in the youth sector to complete study, research or undertake a sabbatical. It is worth $90,000 for a 12 month period (although period is negotiable)

Details around eligibility and application process can be found below.

Please promote to your networks and forward to any talented leaders in the youth sector!

The Vodafone Foundation will also be calling for entries for its Canterbury Fund, dedicated to rebuilding and strengthening the Christchurch community, towards the end of May.  Eligibility criteria are currently being updated and all applications will be online.

Kind regards

Vodafone NZ Foundation
