TED Fellows Program 2017

Twice a year, the TED Fellows program opens applications to find a new class of extraordinary thinkers and doers. Though we target innovators aged 21 to 40, we encourage anyone over 18 years old to apply.

The TED Fellows program is a 400-person global network of makers and doers, a breeding ground of interdisciplinary collaboration that is making a positive impact on the world. The program is designed to catapult careers through services like coaching, mentorship, PR advice for sharing your latest projects and speaker training from a panel of experts. You’ll be a part of a tight-knit community that’s ripe for new ideas and collaborations. Plus, you’ll go to the 2017 TED Conference for free and even give a TED Talk.

Application cycle dates

Each year we open two application cycles: one for TED and one for TEDGlobal. Each application cycle has an opening and closing date – you may only apply to be a Fellow between the opening and closing dates. We do not accept applications during the dates that fall outside of the application cycle window.
20 Fellows will be selected based not only on their accomplishments and the potential impact of their work, but also on their character. An ideal candidate is multidisciplinary-minded and collaborative and is ready to fully utilize the support of the TED community.
Dates for the TED2017 application cycle is as follows:

TED 2017 application cycle
Opening date: June 13, 2016
Closing date: July 30, 2016

TED Global 2017 application cycle
