In a recent video released by the Obama Foundation, ex-President Obama announced the first set of initiatives by the Obama Foundation to inspire and empower young people across the world to change their world. With this announcement, application is open for the inaugural Obama Fellowship Program, which aims to support outstanding young people across the world to inspire and elevate outstanding civic innovation in order to amplify the impact of their remarkable work.
The Fellowship program will draw together diverse set of twenty community-minded rising stars, for example, organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and many more, who are radically changing the landscape of civic engagement in their various communities. The two-year non-residential Fellowship will provide hands-on training, resources, and leadership development. Throughout the program, Fellows will be involved in four multi-day gatherings where they will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners and resources, and collectively push their work forward. Also, each Fellow will pursue a personalized plan to utilize Fellowship resources to push their initiatives to the next level.
Application for the Obama Fellowship Program closes on October 6, 2017.
