People’s Liberty Haile Fellowship provides a year-long civic sabbatical for highly-motivated Greater Cincinnati residents.

Two individuals each year are challenged to research, plan, implement, and present the results of a big idea that could change our community’s future. Fellows are supported with full access to People’s Liberty facility and connections to local and national networks and mentors, during and after the fellowship year.


  • $100,000 award to support salary, research and project-related costs
  • Work space at People’s Liberty
  • Professional support for the development and implementation of a big idea
  • Entry into a network of past and future People’s Liberty grantees, local and national funders and civic partners
