Every year the TED Fellowship programme selects a new group of extraordinary, multidisciplinary individuals by open application. They look for innovators on the rise in their respective fields who are doing bold and original work.
TED Fellows are part of a diverse, collaborative and global community of more than 500 emerging and established experts. If selected, you will have the opportunity to give a TED Talk and gain valuable feedback from TED’s expert coaches on how to hone, express, and communicate your work and ideas.
You will receive career coaching and mentorship from their team of professional coaches and get public relations guidance and media training. You will also participate in virtual programming for TED Fellows and be invited to attend a TED conference.
Who Should Apply?
If you are an individual working on the ground on world-changing ideas – you are a doer, maker, inventor, advocate, filmmaker and photographer, musician and artist, educator, scientist, entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, and human rights activist, then you are a good fit, but you must be over the age of 18 years.
In addition, you should have a proven track record of great work in your field, with fine character and a good heart. Ted is looking for individuals from all disciplines, who have collaborative, and kind personalities. The TED Fellows program is not an academic fellowship and non-traditional educations are welcome.
The primary obligations of your TED Fellowship will last for one year, but as you know – “once a TED Fellow, always a Fellow.” TED will always hope that TED Fellows stay engaged and thoughtful members of the community for many years.
