Every year the TED Fellows program selects a new group of extraordinary, multidisciplinary individuals by open application. We look for innovators on the rise in their respective fields who are doing bold, original work.
TED is looking for the people working on-the-ground on world-changing ideas — the doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and human rights activists. TED is looking for individuals who have a proven track record of great work in their field, with fine character and a good heart. We are looking for individuals from all disciplines, and who have collaborative, kind personalities.
TED Fellows are part of a diverse, collaborative and global community of more than 500 emerging and established experts. If selected, you’ll have the opportunity to give a TED Talk and gain valuable feedback from TED’s expert coaches on how to hone, express and communicate your work and ideas. You’ll receive career coaching and mentorship from the team of professional coaches and get public relations guidance and media training. You’ll participate in virtual programming for TED Fellows and be invited to attend a TED conference.
- The primary obligations of your TED Fellowship last for one year.
- While the first year of the Fellowship is active, we like to say “once a Fellow, always a Fellow.” We hope that TED Fellows stay engaged and thoughtful members of the community for many years.
