About the TED Fellows program

TED Fellows is an international fellowship program designed to nurture great ideas and help them spread around the world. Each year, we select a group of 40 individuals who demonstrate world-changing potential, inviting them to participate in either the TED or TEDGlobal Conference. At the end of the year, we select 10 of these Fellows to participate in an extended two-year Senior Fellowship, bringing them to five consecutive conferences. The principal goal of the program is to empower Fellows to effectively communicate their work to the world.

The TED Fellows program focuses on attracting applicants living or working in five parts of the globe: the Asia-Pacific region, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East, with consideration given to applicants from the rest of the world. (Applicants must be proficient in English.) The program seeks remarkable thinkers and doers who have shown unusual accomplishment, exceptional courage, moral imagination, and the potential to increase positive change in their respective fields. TED Fellows focuses on innovators in technology, entertainment, design, science, film, art, music, entrepreneurship, and the NGO community, among other fields.

As part of the Fellowship, TED Fellows receive conference admission, round-trip transportation, and full accommodation for TED2012, February 27th – March 2nd. Fellows also participate in a three-day pre-conference where they present a short talk about their work, which will be considered forTED.com. Other benefits include elite skill-building courses taught by world experts, social opportunities, and surprise extras.
