Fellows from all over the world to study in US
The Obama Foundation offers Fellowship program to support outstanding civic innovators from around the world in order to amplify the impact of their work and to inspire a wave of civic innovation.
Obama Foundation Fellows will be a diverse set of community-minded rising stars - organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more-who are radically altering the civic engagement landscape. By engaging their fellow citizens to work together in new and meaningful ways, Obama Foundation Fellows will model how any individual can become an active citizen in their community.
The foundation offer hands-on training, resources, and leadership development. Fellows will also participate in four multi-day gatherings where they will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward.
Throughout the program, each Fellow will pursue a personalized plan to
leverage Fellowship resources to take their work to the next level.
The Obama Foundation Fellowship is a Two-year, nonresidential program for 20 fellows
Scholarship Award: The Foundation will cover transportation and accommodation for the in-person convenings. While they can provide support in procuring visas, Fellows will be responsible for covering any visa costs.
Scholarship can be taken in US
To be eligible to receive fellowship, applicants must
be aged 18 years or older. Foundation is looking for participants who are at a “tipping point” stage in their careers, rather than those who fit a particular age requirement
Fellows must be fluent in spoken and written English as all programming will be conducted in English.
The Obama Foundation is looking for:
We’re looking for individuals who are working to solve important public problems in creative and powerful ways. We are inspired by a broad vision of what it means to be “civic,” one that includes leaders tackling a range of issues, in both traditional and unconventional ways.
We need people working from all angles and with different perspectives to strengthen our communities and civic life. This fellowship is for organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more. It is for those working within systems like governments or businesses, as well as those working outside of formal institutions.
At a tipping point in their work
Successful applicants have already demonstrated meaningful impact in their communities, gaining recognition among their peers for their contributions. Now, they stand at a breakthrough moment in their careers. They’re poised to use the Fellowship to significantly advance their work, perhaps by launching new platforms, expanding to broader audiences, or taking their work to a national or global stage. If you’ve already gained global recognition for your work or if your civic innovation work has just begun, you may not be the ideal candidate for this program.
Talented, but not connected
We are committed to expanding the circle of opportunity to include new and varied voices. Thus we have a strong preference for civic innovators who are not currently connected to the networks and resources they need to advance their work. If you’re not sure whether you fit this description, feel free to apply — and make sure to articulate how the resources of the Fellowship would uniquely impact your work.
We are building an authentic community. A strong moral character is essential for the strength of this community, the integrity of the program, and the longevity of its value. We’re seeking inspirational individuals who demonstrate humility and work collaboratively with others towards shared goals.
