The Jeanne Sauve Foundation is currently accepting applications for the Jeanne Sauve Public Leadership Program. The fellowship offers a unique opportunity for a two year full-time intensive residential phase in Montreal for only a group of a a dozen selected fellows and a part-time field phase made to suit each individual Fellow’s activities in their respective communities and countries.
About each phase of the Fellowship
Residential Phase – Full Time
Twelve emerging public leaders from Canada and around the world who share a passion for strengthening culturally diverse societies live together in a beautifully restored historic home in the heart of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Fellows collectively design and undertake a facilitated project that culminates in a series of public engagement activities addressing the challenge of strengthening culturally diverse societies through public leadership.
While in residence, Fellows benefit from:
- Interaction with a thriving network of public leaders
- Access to resources (including the auditing of courses) at McGill University, our program’s academic home, and at Concordia University, our academic partner
- Tailored leadership development programming with a focus on the skills necessary for public leadership
- Personal coaching in support of participants’ leadership development
- Guidance from academic and professional mentors at the top of their fields
- The time, space and liberty to pursue individual initiatives in a supportive environment
- Free accommodation at Jeanne Sauvé House.
- A stipend to cover basic costs of living in Montreal
The residential phase of the Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program represents a full-time (40 hours per week) commitment.
On average, about half of participants’ time (20 hours per week) is devoted to the common program, including time spent working on the collective project.
Their remaining time is devoted to individual pursuits and personal reflection in a supportive, semi-structured environment.
Field Phase – Part Time
Fellows continue on their individual public leadership journeys – either in their home countries or elsewhere, and either through continued work or study. During this phase, participants:
- Receive ongoing support from Sauvé mentors, partners, personal coaches and the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation
- Continue to exchange with their fellow program participants on a regular basis
- Report consistently to the Foundation.
Have access to the Fellows’ Collaboration Fund
The field phase of the Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program requires a commitment of about 8 hours per month.
At the conclusion of the Field Phase of the program, participants are expected to return to Montreal for the program’s Concluding Session.
Over about a week, participants formally report to the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation and to one another on how they have applied – and plan to apply – what they learned through the program.
This Concluding Session overlaps with the arrival of a new cohort of program participants, allowing Jeanne Sauvé Fellows from two distinct cohorts to begin to collaborate and exchange.
After completing the program, participants continue to exchange, learn, and take action as part of a growing network of Jeanne Sauvé Fellows.
This global community of public leaders collaborates across cultures, countries, disciplines and sectors to address issues of global significance.
