Call for: fellows for TED conference

Deadline: 30 July 2016


Twice a year, the TED Fellows program opens applications to find a new class of extraordinary thinkers and doers. Though we target innovators aged 21 to 40, we encourage anyone over 18 years old to apply.


Media entrepreneurs, human rights activists and photographers can apply for a TED fellowship to attend a conference in Vancouver, Canada. The TED Fellows program is designed to bring together young trailblazers from a variety of fields who have shown unusual accomplishment and courage. Twenty fellows will be selected to attend the TED Conference to be held April 24 to 28, 2017. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend pre-conference programs with training by speakers.

Applicants must be proficient in English. TED pays for round-trip economy airfare, ground transportation to and from the conference location, meals and shared accommodation on site.
