RGK Center announces new Ford Motor Company Social Enterprise Fellows Program

The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service at the LBJ School of Public Affairs has announced the new Ford Motor Company Social Enterprise Fellows Program. With help from the Ford Motor Company, the RGK Center will fund management consulting services to Latin American nonprofit and social enterprises organizations whose mission is to enhance community development.

Working in teams, Ford Fellows will provide management consulting services to assist executive managers on issues of strategy, marketing, finance, human resources, and sustainability of the organization.

In addition to having the opportunity to apply newly acquired business and nonprofit management skills, Ford Fellows will gain valuable experience working in a different culture and language. Projects will last two to three weeks and teams will be comprised of three to four graduate students from the University of Texas at Austin, with at least one representative from the McCombs School of Business.

The program will be housed within the RGK Center and will be governed by an eight member advisory board chaired by Professor Peter Frumkin, director of the RGK Center. Project funding will begin immediately and finance from six to ten students for the August 2006 summer program. Additional teams will be selected for the fall 2006 and summer 2007 programs.
