Open Society Fellowship

The Open Society Fellowship was founded in 2008 to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. The fellowship funds work that will enrich public understanding of those challenges and stimulate far-reaching and probing conversations within the Open Society Foundations and in the world.

The Open Society Fellowship invites proposals responding to a specific proposition or provocation relevant to the work of the Foundations. Applicants are currently invited to address new and radical approaches to fight economic inequality.

The Open Society Fellowship program also administers the New Executives Fund and the Open Society Internship for Rights and Governance.
