NOMINATE
A POTENTIAL PAHARA FELLOW

We partner with our Fellows and others in building the Pahara community. While nominations are not required for entry into the Fellowship, they are critical to our ability to identify exceptional leaders from across the education ecosystem. Ideally, a nominator knows enough about the leader’s work to share their thoughts on why they would be an excellent choice for the Fellowship. All nominees will be invited to apply for the Fellowship.

 

We believe that a broad, diverse coalition is needed to reimagine the role and manner of education in society. While the Fellowship is open to all education leaders who meet our selection criteria, we are particularly seeking to identify innovative leaders of nonprofit schools and from organizations serving nonprofit schools, and leaders bringing perspectives from across the political spectrum. 

 

We are sensitive to the ways sponsorship practices, though beneficial, may also disadvantage women and Black, Indigenous, and leaders of color who are less likely to have sponsors. When thinking of incredible change-makers to bring to our attention, we encourage you to consider leaders both within and outside of your close circles. 

 

We aim for diversity of voice and lived experience in our cohorts that is inclusive of the breadth of our humanity across background, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, religious affiliation, and political ideology. 

PREPARING YOUR NOMINATION

It will take you approximately 15 minutes to share your nomination. 

As you prepare your nomination, please plan to share:

  • the leader’s name, title, organization, and email address;

  • how long you’ve known the leader and in what capacity; and

  • examples illustrating why you believe your nominee would be an outstanding choice for the Fellowship.

 

We accept nominations via our website year-round. Nominations received by April 19, 2024 will be considered for the cohorts we launch in 2025.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR NOMINATION

Your nominee will be invited to apply for the Pahara Fellowship. We accept nominations online throughout the year. Because our process is human-centered and requires careful consideration and diligence at every phase, it can be lengthy. We strongly believe that creating a myriad of perspectives in each group is a vital component of the program’s value and impact on participants. You can expect to hear from us with an update on your nominee when they have been selected. Candidates not selected may choose to opt-in for consideration for a future cohort.
