The search is on!
Who’s your best bet to build the next big thing? We’re looking for six young, innovative, social change-makers for the 2014 class of Media Ideation Fellows. If you know a technologist, organizer, or media-maker with big ideas for making the world a better place, spend three minutes right now and nominate them for the Media Ideation Fellowship. Fellows will receive a stipend and mentorship to bring their ideas to life.
All you have to do is enter the name and email address of a student, peer, or colleague who has brilliant ideas and potential to create social change. We’ll do the rest.
Who should I nominate?
Ideal candidates for the fellowship are driven, tech-savvy social change agents who thrive under self-direction and have a specific idea or project they’d like to pursue. We’re looking for the creators of tomorrow’s Upworthy.
Candidates should be currently enrolled graduate students, have recently received an advanced degree, or are in the first five years of their career. Candidates must be based in the U.S. and have U.S. citizenship.
Sometimes, a would-be entrepreneur needs an extra push. Your nomination may remind a young woman that her community believes in her work–and be the extra bit of encouragement she needs to apply. It’s super easy–all you have to do is enter a name and email address.
We’ll follow up with all nominees, share your support, and give them early information on the program before applications open on September 11.
