Global Citizen Fellowship Program 2023/2024

Deadline: September 29, 2023

Applications are open for the Global Citizen Fellowship Program 2023. This dynamic program will take Fellows through a multi-phase curriculum, specifically designed to equip them with the skills and tools they need to thrive – not just during their time with Global Citizen but also in any future professional environment.

Global Citizen will support the scholars in professional and personal development through a deeper understanding of complex social issues and prepare the Fellows to become advocates of social change. Fellows will be expected to engage in group and individual activities that focus on professional development, personal growth, advocacy, cultural exposure, social justice and equity. This will include group discussions and working to apply skills in local communities. After completion, fellows will receive letters of recommendation, guidance on future endeavors and stay connected with other Fellow alumni.
