TED, a non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, invites applications from doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, and human rights activists for its TEDGlobal 2017 Fellowship.
Offered twice a year, the TED Fellows programme has openings for a new class of extraordinary thinkers and doers. It targets innovators aged between 21 and 40 years old, though it encourages anyone over 18 years old to apply.
Deadline for submission of applications for the TEDGlobal 2017 Fellowship is November 13, 2016 at 11:59pm UTC (7:59pm ET).
Each year TED Fellowships open two application cycles: one for TED and one for TEDGlobal. Each application cycle has an opening and closing date and an applicant may only apply to be a Fellow within the opening and closing dates. Applicants are advised to ensure they apply to be a Fellow within the opening and closing dates as TED does not accept applications submitted outside of the application cycle windows.
Every year TED opens two application cycles: one for TED and one for TEDGlobal with each application cycle having an opening and closing date.
