Echoing Green seeks social entrepreneurs who exhibit fearlessness in defending their ideas, an unwavering belief that all individuals have the potential to contribute meaningfully to society, and a powerful passion for developing new solutions to some of society’s most challenging problems. The Fellowship Program last two years and provides Fellows with financial and technical assistance (ranging from a large global network to a close peer-to-peer learning) to enhance their leadership skills and ensure organizational sustainability. Instead of working on a predefined project with an existing organization, each Fellow creates and builds his/her own organization to execute his/her own vision for social change.

The fellowship offers:

•    A stipend of $80,000 for individuals (or $90,000 for 2-person partnerships) paid in four equal installments over two years
•    A health insurance stipend
•    A yearly professional development stipend
•    Conferences led by organizational development experts
•    Access to technical support and pro bono partnerships to help grow your organization
•    A community of like-minded social entrepreneurs and public service leaders, including the Echoing Green network of nearly 500 alumni working all over the world.

Eligibility: Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and be legal US citizens. Check the website for a full list of requirements for a potential organization. Will not fund current students or scholarships–support is for an organization.

Deadline: October 25, 2016
