Overview

Echoing Green Fellows are the innovators, instigators, pioneers, and rebels that reject the status quo and drive positive social change all over the world. While their work, their geographies, and even their approaches may be as varied as the problems they are working to solve, their common passion and commitment form the base of this robust, active community of leaders. ​Social entrepreneurship Fellows work on six continents addressing a broad range of issues: 

Economic Development
Education
Environmental Sustainability
Health
Hunger & Poverty Alleviation
Justice & Human Rights
Racial & Gender Equity

Eligibility

  • You must be over 18 years old, fluent in English, and able to commit a full 40-hour work week to your organization. The organization must be the original idea of the applicant(s), in its start-up phase (usually within the first two years of operation), and independent and autonomous.

  • If you are currently a full-time student or employee, you must agree to make your organization your full-time employment if awarded a Fellowship.

  • You do not need to be based in the US or be an American citizen. The only limitation on work location is that if your project is based in the United States, then you must have American work authorization (i.e., citizenship, permanent residence status, or a work visa). Echoing Green does not sponsor American work permits for any foreign nationals.
