Echoing Green's Fellowship Programs offer seed-stage funding and support to emerging leaders working to bring about positive social change.
During their first two years, Fellows receive up to $90,000, participate in leadership development gatherings, and will access the powerful network of Echoing Green Fellows, partners, and friends. Echoing Green's Barclays Brain Trust Series, sponsored in part by Barclays, is a program of roundtable and mentorship opportunities for Fellows with leading professionals working in marketing, fundraising, business development, and technology. We continue to support our Fellow community long after their initial funding period with ongoing programs and opportunities at critical inflection points in their organizations or careers.
You may be a full time student at the time of application, but must have completed your studies by the start of the fellowship period. If you awarded an Echoing Green fellowship, you are agreeing to make your organization your full-tine employment.
