World Merit Leadership Fellowship Program 2015-16 – USA and UK

Deadline: Not Specified

Applications are now open for the 2015-2016 World Merit Fellowship Program, a year long leadership development program focused on tackling global issues. The World Merit Fellowship Program (WMFP) is aimed at bringing together passionate young people from every country, industry, sector and background with a passion to change the world – is this you? World Merit is a global platform for talented and collaborative millennials making a positive impact in the world.


The Fellowship Program will start in the United States for two weeks and end together in the United Kingdom for two weeks but you, and the other fellows will use technology to harness ideas from the wider World Merit community from home in the intervening period of 11 months. The travel and cultural exchange is an exciting component, but the program is designed to work next to your existing job or studies.


For the 2015/16 Fellowship Program prospective participants are to fundraise a fee of £2000 as contribution towards Food, Accommodation, Communication, and Transportation costs in the United States (July 2015) and in the United Kingdom (July 2016).

All selected participants will receive direct scholarship funds of £6000 paid from registered charity Merit Youth.


  • World Merit is looking for people aged 18-30 that have proven their merit by taking action in their communities.
  • Young leaders from every country and any background can apply
