Nominations are being accepted for 2004 sabbatical awards for North Carolina nonprofit leaders.
The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in Winston-Salem will give five awards of $15,000 each to leaders who are experiencing stress and burnout from their jobs.
Each applicant designs a plan for personal renewal and professional growth.
During the 14 years the foundation has offered the sabbatical program, people have used their time to write, read, study, travel and improve family relationships.
Selections are based on the difficulty of the work environment, degree of need for a break, and a candidate’s potential to continue to make a significant contribution to a chosen field.
Applications are due by Dec. 1 and preference will be given to people with at least five years of experience.
