Earlier this year, World Learning announced the creation of the Advancing Leaders Fellowship, which supports alumni implementing original social innovation projects worldwide. We received more than 100 applications from alumni of all of World Learning’s major programs, who proposed projects on five continents that tackle a wide range of social needs.
It was difficult, but we narrowed it down to 10 finalists, who will present their proposals to an audience and panel of judges at World Learning’s inaugural Social Innovation Summit on June 5 in San Francisco. The judges will announce the five fellowship recipients that evening during The Citation Award dinner honoring former World Learning trustee Judy Huret. The five fellows will each receive leadership development and social innovation training and $10,000 to implement their project.
