The Stanton Fellowship allows leaders to test a hunch, pursue an inquiry, and leverage their knowledge and contacts.
We are seeking the most knowledgeable, inquisitive, creative, and highly networked thinkers and doers – the ones who are best positioned to identify and make headway on a big question facing Los Angeles.
The Durfee Foundation’s Stanton Fellowship provides up to six fellows with $100,000 each over a two-year period to think deeply about big questions, and to tease out approaches that will improve life for the people of L.A.
Peer learning is an important part of the Stanton Fellowship. Fellows meet regularly to share their work, learn from one another about their respective fields and projects, and discover more about LA from visits to different sites and neighborhoods and hearing from local experts. They come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, and bring curiosity and engagement to a cross-disciplinary network.
