About the Program

The Laureate Global Fellowship is a pioneering youth social entrepreneurship program working to redefine how young people lead change.

Launched in 2001, the fellowship invests annually in twenty extraordinary young leaders whose social ventures are transforming how age-old challenges are addressed in their communities and countries. Fellowship applicants earn their spot in this renowned cohort through a rigorous selection process including evaluation by a panel of peer leaders and executives from distinguished global institutions.

Sponsored by Laureate International Universities, the Laureate Global Fellowship is one of YouthActionNet’s 23 national/regional youth leadership institutions worldwide, whose fellows shape our network of nearly 1500 youth driving change in 90 countries.

Through the fellowship, hundreds of young leaders and their ventures have discovered the power of joining a likeminded community of peers and received access to the support they need to shape a more just and inclusive future.

Who is Eligible?

  • Young leaders ages 18-29 who have founded or co-founded social ventures with at least one year of impact are eligible to apply to the fellowship.
  • All countries, genders, education levels, races, religions, and social impact areas.
