Deadline: 7 September 2016
The Open Society Foundation is seeking applications for its 2016 Open Society Fellowship Programme with an aim to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges.
Open Society fellows produce work outputs of their own choosing, such as a book, journalistic or academic articles, art projects, a series of convenings, etc.
- One year fellows will receive a stipend of $80,000 or $100,000, depending on work experience, seniority, and current income.
- Stipends will be prorated for shorter term fellows. The stipend does not necessarily equal the applicant’s current salary.
- Ideal fellows are specialists who can see beyond the parochialisms of their field and possess the tenacity to complete a project of exceptional merit.
- Proposals will be accepted from anywhere in the world, although demonstrable proficiency in spoken and written English is required.
- Applicants should possess and demonstrate a deep understanding of the major themes embedded within the statement for which they wish to apply and be willing to serve in a cohort of fellows with diverse occupational, geographic, and ideological profiles.
- Successful applicants should be eager to exploit the many resources offered by the Open Society Foundations and be prepared to engage constructively with their global network.
