FFI Alumni Fellowships
FFI Alumni Fellowships
Leave a Legacy
Friends Forever International has created several Fellowships to help our alumni continue to grow their impact and create change in their communities. Fellowships can take many forms, including named fellowships, which are more rigidly defined, and alumni-driven fellowships, which are more independently designed.
Currently, there are four named Fellowships, which are all expenses paid opportunities that include a trip to the US and require a 1-year commitment. These three programs have slightly different focuses, which you can learn more about on their respective pages. All of our fellowship opportunities, named or otherwise, are designed to help alumni grow as leaders and give them the opportunity to direct a project within FFI's programs and mission.
FFI Fellowships are open to all FFI program alumni. Our named fellowships honor the legacies of members of the FFI family who went above and beyond in service to their communities. Fellowships are fully funded by the generous donations of our supporters. You can contribute to an existing fund or learn about creating a named fellowship with FFI below.
Fund an FFI Fellow
Are you interested in supporting one of our alumni who has demonstrated a commitment to Friends Forever International and our values? FFI has over 1,500 alumni globally and is working with 100 new youth annually. These young men and women bring enthusiasm and dedication to leadership and peace-building that is inspiring. With this in mind, we have established scholarships for “Fellows”. These funds will provide annual scholarships* for alumni that meet not only FFI’s requirements but also that align with the donor’s passion. These alumni will be working both at FFI’s global headquarters in Durham, NH but also commit to working in the region of the world where they are from. You can also ask that the scholarship fund a specific field of interest i.e. the environment, arts, politics, youth work, etc.
If you or your family are interested in creating a gift that provides a scholarship for alumni in perpetuity, we have an easy way for you to make that happen. Please contact Executive Director, Stephen Martineau (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will answer any questions you may have.
*Named scholarship funds require a minimum start gift of $25,000 and a full fellowship will require a total investment of $50,000. This will provide the annual returns required to cover the expenses and the principle cannot be touched.
