Every year the TED Fellows program selects a new group of extraordinary, multidisciplinary individuals by open application. We look for innovators on the rise in their respective fields who are doing bold, original work.
How to apply
The TED Fellows program is currently accepting applications for the 2022 TED Fellowship. The deadline to submit your application is June 30, 2021 at 11:59pm UTC.
Who should apply
The TED Fellows Program recognizes the folks working on-the-ground on world-changing ideas -- the doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and human rights activists. If you’re at work on a future-shaping idea and over the age of 18, you should apply.
The TED Fellows program is not an academic fellowship and non-traditional educations are welcome.
In addition to impressive accomplishment, fine character and a good heart are also important traits we look for in TED Fellows.
