Roddenberry Foundation Invites Applications for New Fellowship for U.S.-Based Activists

Launched in 2010, the Roddenberry Foundation is committed to finding and supporting remarkable people and organizations that can disrupt existing dynamics, challenge old patterns of thought, and discover new ways to help us move toward a better future. To that end, the foundation provide grants to accelerate the development of great untested ideas and models that are challenging the status quo and improving the human condition.

To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its inaugural Roddenberry Fellowship program.

Through the program, twenty individuals from across the United States will each receive $50,000 to pursue a project or initiative in the fields of civil rights, climate change and environmental justice, immigration and refugee rights, and/or LGBTQIA and women’s rights. In addition to the funds, the fellowship includes tailored support for each activist as he or she launches a new initiative or amplifies an existing early-stage project. Five fellows will be selected in each of the issue areas.

First-found applications must be received no later than August 22, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a second-round application in September. Fellows will be announced in December 2017, and the one-year program will begin in January 2018.

See the Roddenberry Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: August 22, 2017 (First-Round Applications)
