Obama Fellows Program
Obama Foundation Accepting Applications for Fellows Program
The Obama Foundation is accepting applications to a fellowship program designed to amplify the impact of outstanding civic innovators from around the world and inspire a wave of civic innovation.
Obama Fellows comprise a diverse set of leaders who bring a community-centered approach to science, criminal justice, healthcare, education, the arts, and more. Together, they model the powerful truth that each of us has a role to play in civic life. The two-year, non-residential fellowship offers hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to help fellows scale the impact of their work. Fellows participate in four multi-day gatherings where they collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Throughout the program, each fellow pursues a personalized plan to leverage the fellowship experience and take their work to the next level.
To be eligible, applicants should be individuals who are working to solve important public problems in creative and powerful ways. This fellowship is for organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more. It is for those working within systems like governments or businesses, as well as those working outside of formal institutions. People working from all angles and with different perspectives to strengthen their communities and civic life are encouraged to apply.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Obama Foundation website.
