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.
