Nonprofit Accelerators Program
HDO recognizes the vital work that nonprofits contribute to society and we want to celebrate the individuals that make that work happen.
Each semester, several people working in the nonprofit sector will be selected to receive complimentary participation in an HDO Certificate Program.
These “Nonprofit Accelerators” will be full participants in their selected program and will receive a certificate upon completion of their final course. As with all certificate seekers, Nonprofit Accelerator awardees will have 18 months to complete their four courses.
- Applicants must work for a nonprofit organization, the government, the military, or a not-for-profit educational institution
- Upon completion of their certificate program, we will ask our Nonprofit Accelerators to provide an overview of what they learned and how this will help them better contribute to serving their organization’s mission (this may be in written form and/or via a video interview)
- Completed application (including a short letter of recommendation)
Application for Spring 2024 Will Open Soon
If you are considering applying, please begin your application as early as possible. The application requires a letter of recommendation from a colleague or supervisor. We suggest giving your recommender at least a week to complete and submit their letter.
If you have any questions, please contact Andrew M. Vasquez, HDO’s Enrollment & Success Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants and nominees who are not selected as one of our Nonprofit Accelerators are still eligible to receive our discounted certificate program registration pricing available for all nonprofit employees.
