The Open Society Fellowship supports individuals seeking innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. The fellowship seeks “idea entrepreneurs” from across the world who are ready to challenge conventional wisdom. The Open Society Fellowship chooses its fellows from a diverse pool of applicants that includes journalists, activists, academics, and practitioners in a variety of fields. Fellowships are granted for one year, six months, and, in a small number of cases, for three months. One-year fellows will receive a stipend of USD 80,000 or USD 100,000, depending on work experience, seniority, and current income. Stipends will be prorated for shorter-term fellows. The deadline to submit an application is 7th September, 2016. More information is available here.
