Applications Open for Echoing Green Fellowship!

Deadline: 24 October 2017

Do you have a solution that will help your community thrive, an idea that will create new pathways to justice, or see a fresh opportunity where others only see obstacles? If yes, then apply for Echoing Green Fellowship!

This is the fellowship for innovators, instigators, pioneers, and rebels. We know that talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not—which is why we invest in talent wherever it is. Fellows represent diverse ethnic, religious, and gender experiences, with varied educational, economic, and geographic backgrounds.

As the fellowship seeks to build a diverse and inclusive social impact space, we particularly encourage applications from:

  • Racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S., including Black, Latinx, and Native/Indigenous people
  • Women
  • LGBTQ communities
  • Currently underrepresented U.S. cities, including Baltimore, Atlanta, Oakland, Detroit, Louisville, Milwaukee, Kansas City, and Miami
  • Currently underrepresented regions globally, including Latin & Central America and East Asia

The social entrepreneurship Fellows work on six continents addressing a broad range of issues. Learn about their work on:

A stipend paid in four equal installments over two years ($80,000 for individuals; $90,000 for two-person partnerships), in addition to health insurance and professional development stipends.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicant must be over 18 years old, fluent in English, and able to commit a full 40 hour work week to their organization.
