Echoing Green Accepting Applications for Fellowship Program

Echoing Green (www.echoinggreen.org) provides first-stage funding and support to visionary leaders with bold ideas for social change. Echoing Green seeks to identify, fund, and support the world’s most exceptional emerging leaders and the organizations they launch. Through a two-year fellowship program, Echoing Green helps social entrepreneurs develop new solutions to some of society’s most difficult problems.

Echoing Green has an open application process for its fellowship program. Anyone who meets the program’s eligibility requirements and has a compelling and innovative idea for social change is welcome to apply. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Projects must be the original idea of the applicant and must be independent and autonomous. The applicant must be the primary decision maker for the program’s development and management. Projects must be in a start-up phase. To be considered a “start-up,” the applicant may have been running the organization full-time for up to two years, and Echoing Green’s financial support should qualify it as a major/primary early funder. Applicants must make a full-timecommitment to the project’s development. Partnerships (no more than two individuals) may apply.

Applicants do not need to be U.S. citizens. However, if the applicant is not a U.S. citizen and does not have legal status to work in the U.S., no services in connection with their fellowship may be performed in the United States. It is strongly recommended that potential applicants complete the fellowship program’s online Pre-Application Questionnaire before beginning the application process. The questionnaire is designed to help potential applicants decide whether their idea is a good match for Echoing Green. The Echoing Green Web site also provides background information on the fellowship, profiles of fellows, and complete application instructions, and an FAQ. The deadline for applicaitons is December 1, 2006.
