The fellowship provides funding and mentorship to tech-savvy entrepreneurs in their early careers. Ideal candidates have innovative solutions to social problems.

Candidates for the latest round of the Voqal Fellowship must have three to five years of career experience and may not be enrolled in graduate school. Fellows have six months to complete their project and will receive a $30,000 stipend in order to build out an idea that would not be possible to accomplish with a full-time job.
