Deadline: 27 August 2019
Applicants are invited to apply for TED Fellows program which provides transformational support to a global network of 470+ visionaries – scientists, artists, activists, entrepreneurs, doctors, journalists and inventors – who collaborate across disciplines to create positive change around the world.
TED is looking for individuals who have a proven track record of great work in their field and are on the brink of an incredible breakthrough, but need the extra support to get there. They’re looking for individuals from all disciplines who have collaborative, kind personalities.
The program covers the costs of transportation to and from the TED conference, any visa you may need, accommodations and food while at the conference and conference registration.
- The program welcomes anyone over the age of 18 to apply.
- The program looks for different applicants than many other leadership-oriented programs. Instead of business people, professionals, policy wonks and government officials, the TED Fellows program focuses on doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, and human rights activists.
- In addition to impressive accomplishment, fine character and a good heart are also important traits they look for in TED Fellows. More than anything, this focus on character has defined the success of the TED Fellows program.
