Developing Highly Effective, Culturally Competent Leaders
Wilder employees have the opportunity to apply for a Kingston Fellowship, which provides the opportunity to develop a highly effective, culturally competent set of leaders and promote ongoing improvement of human services in the entire community. The Kingston Fellowship is an honor awarded to Wilder employees annually from the Kingston Fellowship named endowment fund. This fund was established with a lead gift from Tom and Mary Kingston along with contributions from many friends of the Wilder Foundation.
The Fellowship provides honorees the opportunity to study, teach, conduct research, exchange ideas and develop innovative programs to address community concerns. Individuals are chosen for Fellowships based on demonstrated accomplishments in their discipline, commitment to the field of human services, and leadership potential.
