TED Fellowship Program 2015 now open!

Deadline: September 21, 2014

The TED2015 Fellowship Program application is now open! Twice a year, the TED Fellows program opens applications to find a new class of extraordinary thinkers and doers. The TED Fellows program is an international fellowship program designed to nurture great ideas and help them spread around the world.

Though they target innovators aged 21 to 40, anyone over 18 years old is encouraged to apply. The TED Fellows program is looking for people who have demonstrated remarkable accomplishment.


TED pays for round-trip economy airfare, ground transportation to and from the conference location, and meals and shared accommodation on site. TED does not cover hotel incidental expenses.

In addition to the above terms and conditions, all Fellows must comply with all terms and conditions of TED registration, as well as TED.com Terms of Use.


Instead of business people, professionals, policy wonks and government officials, the TED Fellows program focuses on doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, and human rights activists.

In addition to impressive accomplishment, fine character and a good heart are two very important traits they look for in a every potential TED Fellow.

  • Applicants should be over age 18 to apply.
  • Individuals from all around the world can apply but applicants from across the five target regions — Africa, the Asia/Pacific region, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East are encouraged to apply.
  • English proficiency is a requirement.

Please note: Due to the volume of applications, incomplete and late applications will not be considered. Misrepresentation of information on the application will result in immediate disqualification.
