Answer: QUESTION: paid fellowship programs for activists, academics. journalists or analysts concerned with human rights, social, economic or environmental justice


There's Idealist. You can search their database and limit results to paid opportunities. You can specify areas of focus (women, poverty and hunger, housing and homelessness, etc.). There are also search boxes for keywords and location.

I haven't found a comparable database for fellowships, but internet searching does yield results. You'll just have to comb through them. Holler again if you need help with key words.

QUESTION: non-profits with for-profit wings

question / pregunta: 

I'm working on an article about a company District Energy, which is a non-profit that also operates a for-profit energy company called Market Street Energy. How common is the practice of non-profits owning for-profit businesses? How is it done legally? Can the money generated go directly back into the non-profit? Do these for-profit companies operate under any of the restrictions that apply to nonprofits, or are they regulated the same as any other corporation? Any info would be much appreciated.
