The Center offers graduate and undergraduate students opportunities to explore the nonprofit sector including the Scott/Ross Center Fellowship in Nonprofit Management, as well as teaching assistantships, scholarships, and other fellowships for students interested in community engagement and leadership.
"This fellowship has confirmed for me that this sector is where I want to be … In addition, the fellowship has allowed me to explore other possible positions within this field. It has opened my eyes to many more opportunities within the sector." Sarah Gallagher ‘13SOM Summer 2012 S/RC 2012 Fellow
Scott/Ross Center Fellowship in Nonprofit Management
The Scott/Ross Center Fellowship in Nonprofit Management provides Simmons students with the opportunity to explore nonprofit management while also developing and applying their skills to the service of a Boston area non-profit organization. Emily Scott Pottruck '78, member of the College's Board of Trustees, has established two 8-week paid fellowships for students with distinguished records of community service to pursue their interest and further expand their knowledge in philanthropy and grant making and non-profit programming and management challenges.
The fellows work with the Boston Foundation to gain an understanding of philanthropy and grant making. They are also placed in up to two non-profit community partners to further develop programmatic expertise and to understand management issues and challenges in leading non-profit organizations. Specific projects will be designed based on the student's interests and experience and may relate to such aspects of nonprofit management as governance, financial management, fundraising, human resources, volunteer management, marketing and communications and leadership.
"The strength of this fellowship is that it allows you to experience a large spectrum of the nonprofit sector. Allowing Fellows to spend time in multiple organizations allows them to see many different kinds of leadership and management along with the different kinds of organizations out there." Jennie Holloway '14, 2012 S/RC Fellow

"While I already had a reasonable grasp on the purpose and role of nonprofits in our society, the connection to philanthropy and grant making was something I had no knowledge and appreciation for previously. To put the sector I was already involved with in light of the vitality of philanthropy and grant making gave me a greater understanding of the dynamic nature of nonprofits." Ali Fuller ‘13SOM, 2012 S/RC Fellow
