2019 Schusterman Fellowship and Senior Fellow Evaluation Report

August 1, 2019

Since 2016, the Schusterman Family Foundation has engaged Learning for Action (LFA) as the evaluation and learning partner for the Schusterman Fellowship. As part of that work, LFA designed a theory of change (see following slide) and conducted several standalone evaluations of the Fellowship program and the Senior Fellows program. 2019 marks the third year of data available on the Fellowship and the second year of data on the Senior Fellows program. For the first time, these data are reported together so the Schusterman Foundation can examine trends and begin to explore some early longitudinal results from the Fellowship programming. This report thus summarizes the findings of the impact of the first three years of the Fellowship on Fellows while also providing an exploration of the longer-term impacts of the Fellowship and Senior Fellows programming.
