About the Community Leadership in Justice Fellowship

The Community Leadership in Justice Fellowship (CLJF) gives senior-level employees in nonprofit organizations the opportunity to spend all or part of an academic year at an Ontario law school, university, or community college department dedicated to legal or justice studies.

The fellowship:

  • Provide professional development and renewal for a recognized community leader
  • Strengthens the bond between academia and public interest organizations
  • Broadens and enrich faculty and students’ academic experience through innovative approaches to teaching and learning
  • Builds bridge across disciplines for the benefit of the broader community

The Foundation provides funding up to a maximum of $65,000 toward the cost of the fellow’s salary and provides funding up to $15,000 to the academic host for equipment and program-related expenses.
