Piper Trust is now accepting applications for its 2017-2019 Resident Scholar. As a way to engage young professionals in the social profit sector, Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, a private, place-based foundation in Phoenix, Arizona (Maricopa County) established the Piper Trust Resident Scholars Program. Through a paid two-year commitment, Resident Scholars can learn about the social profit sector and philanthropy, examine issues and challenges in our region, and contribute to advancing the Trust’s mission of improving well-being for all in Maricopa County.

Piper Trust Resident Scholars will receive a stipend of $45,000 per year, plus full health benefits, professional development support, and work-related travel expenses. Housing, transportation, and living arrangements are the responsibility of the Scholars.
