TED is looking for early-career, visionary thinkers from around the world to join the Fellows program at the upcoming TED2018 conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. For each conference, TED selects a class of 20 Fellows based on their exceptional achievement and an innovative approach to tackling the world’s toughest problems, as well as on their character, grit, and collaborative spirit.

TED Fellows are a multidisciplinary group of remarkable thinkers and doers who have shown unusual accomplishment, exceptional courage, and the potential to create positive change in their respective fields – including technology, entertainment, design, science, film, art, music, entrepreneurship, the NGO community and beyond. The TED Fellows program is designed to catapult your career through transformational support like coaching and mentorship, public relations guidance for sharing your latest projects, hands on speaker training, and, most importantly, access to the vibrant global network of more than 400 Fellows from over 90 countries.

The online application includes general biographical questions, short essays on your work, and three references. Applications close September 10, 2017.
