Application for Obama Foundation Fellowship 2018 is Still Open

The Obama Foundation Fellows will be a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more– who are altering the civic engagement landscape. By engaging their fellow citizens to work together in new and meaningful ways, Obama Foundation Fellows will model how any individual can become an active citizen in their community.

The inaugural class of 20 Fellows will be integral to shaping the program and the
community of Fellows for future years. For this first class, we’re seeking participants who are especially excited about helping us design, test, and refine the Fellowship.

  • Guidance in developing a personalized Fellowship roadmap to help you get the most out of the program
  • Ongoing skill-building and training courses tailored to your particular needs
  • Individual coaching and mentoring to help you move your work forward
  • Participation in a global cohort of leaders poised to change the civic engagement landscape
  • Exposure to opportunities provided by other Foundation programming, such as mentorship roles and speaking engagements
  • Participation in four gatherings (including economy airfare to/from the event, lodging, and all meals during the events)
  • For the inaugural class – the opportunity to shape the Fellowship program for future years
Civic innovators
  • They are looking for individuals who are working to solve important public problems in creative and powerful ways.
Discipline diverse
  • 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.
At a tipping point in their work
  • Successful applicants have already demonstrated meaningful impact in their communities, gaining recognition among their peers for their contributions. Now, they stand at a breakthrough moment in their careers.
  • They’re poised to use the Fellowship to significantly advance their work, perhaps by launching new platforms, expanding to broader audiences, or taking their work to a national or global stage.
  • If you’ve already gained global recognition for your work or if your civic innovation work has just begun, you may not be the ideal candidate for this program.
