The Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships will support dynamic youth activists, aged 22 to 30 and based in Latin America, who want to launch a project of their own design to foster a more just, inclusive, accessible, and feminist future for Latin America. Successful projects will reflect on the upcoming 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, address current realities, and propose a specific and detailed idea for advancing women’s rights and gender justice.

This 12-month fellowship program explicitly recognizes the threats of discrimination to an open society and seeks to create a leadership pipeline to promote young people who have personal, direct experiences with interpersonal and institutional prejudice.

The Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships attempt to place young people’s voices at the heart of on-going activism and organizing that seeks to articulate feminist visions for just and inclusive societies, to develop innovative solutions to make such visions a reality, and to foster more just, inclusive, and accessible feminist spaces. In particular, the fellowships have the following goals:

  • Amplify alternative and missing narratives and realities of feminist activists;
  • Strengthen the feminist movement by elevating voices and experiences that are currently suppressed and excluded, and recognize groups of young feminist activists who face discrimination at several levels, both inside and outside their community;
  • Build the leadership capacity of young feminist activists and support them with the necessary tools to disrupt oppressive anti-rights policies;
  • Promote more inclusive discourse around young feminist leadership development, identifying and developing talent, and expanding the conversation to curate a more accessible platform for inclusion in the movement.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be between 22 and 30 years of age at the start of the fellowship. Applicants must also be based in Latin America and demonstrate proficiency in English, Spanish, and/or Portuguese. Furthermore, applicants should also be at the early stages of their careers and want to learn more about how to increase their effectiveness as an activist and organizer around issues of gender justice and equality across movements. Applicants should have demonstrated experience in community organizing or activism on a local, national, or regional level.
  • Applicants who are directly affected by or have direct lived experience of the challenges, policies, practices, acute forms of discrimination, and systems that perpetuate dominant narratives or identity-based stereotypes are strongly encouraged to apply. Tjey are looking for candidates who have not had easy access to existing leadership pipelines but are eager to seize an opportunity for growth and development.
  • Successful candidates will be required to partner with a host organization for the 12-month duration of the fellowship. Fellowship projects can be full-time (minimum of 35 hours/week) or part-time (20 hours/week).
