The Obama Foundation is looking for applications from Canada and around the world for its fellowship program. The Obama Foundation Fellows will be a diverse set of community-minded rising stars – organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, journalists, and more – who are altering the civic engagement landscape.

By engaging their fellow citizens to work together in new and meaningful ways, Obama Foundation Fellows will model how any individual can become an active citizen in their community.

The two-year, non-residential Fellowship will offer hands-on training, resources, and leadership development. Fellows will also participate in four multi-day gatherings where they will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Transportation to these gatherings will be covered, but stipends will not be paid throughout.

To apply, visit the Application Page and fill out all required fields by October 6, 2017.
