MacArthur routinely conducts reviews of our grantmaking programs to help us learn from our work and make the Foundation more effective. Such reviews are standard at most foundations. “We are proud of the Fellows Program and its impact on the lives of not just those selected but people all over the world, who are inspired by the extraordinary creativity of diverse individuals of all ages, parts of the country, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and in every imaginable field of human endeavor,” said Cecilia Conrad, Vice President, MacArthur Fellows Program. “We believe the program inspires people from all walks of life to think about how they can use their own skills and ideas to make the world a better place.”
A summary of findings from our recent review of the MacArthur Fellows Program is attached, as is an overview letter to Fellows about the review from Vice President Cecilia Conrad.
