“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.” -Sylvia Plath

Simmons College

Scott/Ross Center Fellow 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."
