The 2014 Echoing Green Fellowship Application is Now Open.
Echoing Green is one of the many "non-legal" fellowships that greatly appeal to law students. "The 2014 Echoing Green Fellowship application will be open from December 3, 2013 to January 6, 2014. Echoing Green's Fellowship Programs will offer more than $3.8 million in seed-stage funding and support this year to emerging leaders working to bring about positive social change. From thousands of applicants, only about 1 percent are ultimately awarded a Fellowship. During their first two years, Fellows receive up to $90,000, participate in leadership development gatherings, and have access to the powerful network of Echoing Green Fellows, partners, and friends. We continue to support our Fellow community long after their initial funding period with ongoing programs and opportunities at critical inflection points in their organizations or careers." Echoing Green manages three fellowship programs including the new climate fellowship for 2013. They are as follows:
The Global Fellowship is our twenty-five year-old program for smart leaders who are deeply connected to the needs and potential solutions that may work best for their communities. Any emerging social entrepreneur from any part of the world working to disrupt the status quo may apply.
The Open Society Black Male Achievement (BMA) Fellowship invests in emerging leaders dedicated to improving the life outcomes of black men and boys in the U.S. The BMA Fellowship unlocks access to the vast communities of Echoing Green and Open Society Foundations.
The Climate Fellowship, announced in 2013, is specifically targeted for the best next-generation social entrepreneurs committed to working on innovations in mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
