Melton Fellowship

Applications deadline: 15 January 2020

The Melton Fellowship starts while you are in university. Through online learning, global teamwork, and collaborative projects you will exercise your global citizenship muscle.

Our 1.5-year Global Citizenship Program is designed as an extra-curricular program that will fire up your can-do attitude and will-do motivation to become the critical thinker and global problem-solver you aspire to be. Supported by our global network of mentors and partner organizations, you’ll acquire skills in areas such as intercultural communications, teamwork, design thinking, project management, storytelling, ethical leadership, and systems thinking. As you work together with others in pursuit of collaborative solutions to challenges of today’s interconnected world, Project TeamsActs of Global Citizenship, and global workshops and conferences will be your fueling stations.

After graduating from the program, you will join our Senior Fellow network, where you will find the stimulus and support needed as you take your own initiatives forward and continue to drive change in your growing spheres of influence.
