24 Sep Apply for Obama Foundation Fellowship Programme
The Obama Foundation Fellowship seeks 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.
The foundation which was formed by former US President Barack Obama, is rolling out the fellowship programme as one of its main initiatives to offer hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to Fellows, a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organisers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more – who are altering the civic engagement landscape. The Obama Foundation is looking for individuals who are working to solve important public problems in creative and powerful ways.
The Fellows will participate in four multi-day gatherings where they will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Applications are open here until October, with successful applicants to be notified in February 2017 prior to a first gathering in April 2017.
