Apply Now for the 2020 World Fellows Program

The Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program at Yale University cultivates rising leaders from across the globe committed to making a positive impact on the world. Applications and nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Program (due by December 4, 2019). 

World Fellows are trailblazers, disruptive thinkers and bold, original voices in their fields. They are people of character, integrity, energy and talent. They are committed to something bigger than self. They are amazing story tellers. World Fellows are social entrepreneurs, elected politicians, artists, diplomats, NGO workers, journalists, human rights defenders, climate activists, and more. Applications are encouraged from all sectors and disciplines. 

During the four-month, full-time residential program at Yale, World Fellows refine their vision of how to address the challenges facing society; strengthen their communication and leadership skills; attend classes; inspire and mentor Yale students to serve others; and develop their global network.
