The AH Next Generation Nonprofit Leaders Program (NextGen) is a competitive internship scholarship/stipend program for American Humanics students.
NextGen is designed to help a racially and ethnically diverse group of students with demonstrated leadership potential complete their AH certification requirements, specifically the minimum 300-hour nonprofit internship. NextGen Leaders earn a scholarship of $4,500 from AH during their internship, along with access to and support from a network of nonprofit leaders who will serve as Career Coaches.
To date, AH has identified almost 400 students nationwide as NextGen Leaders, awarding more than $1.7 million in scholarships. Through 2012, American Humanics plans to select 1,000 NextGen Leaders who will successfully complete their AH certification requirements and graduate to professional positions in the nonprofit sector.
Nonprofit organizations that host a NextGen Leader will gain access to, and benefit from, the services of talented and committed American Humanics students preparing to enter the workforce as nonprofit professionals. A goal of NextGen is to illustrate the positive effect of competitive internship stipends and scholarships on the recruitment and retention of skilled and diverse next generation nonprofit leaders.
