TED Fellows Program 2019

The TED Fellows program provides transformational support to a global community of 450+ innovators who are collaborating across disciplines to spark positive change around the world.

The application for our TED2019 Fellows class is now open! We’re searching for 20 individuals from all backgrounds whose bold work has the potential to spark real change across our planet.

Who should apply

We look for different applicants than many other leadership-oriented programs. Instead of business people, professionals, policy wonks and government officials, the TED Fellows program focuses on doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, and human rights activists.

In addition to impressive accomplishment, fine character and a good heart are two very important traits we look for in an every potential TED Fellow. More than anything, this focus on character has defined the success of the TED Fellows program. Apply by August 26.
