What would you do to change the world? Apply to become a Dalai Lama Fellow 2018. Through the Fellowship program, they select, convene, coach and provide funding for next generation leaders. Fellows join a LifeLong community.

The Dalai Lama Fellowship offers emerging leaders a rigorous, interdisciplinary program on ways to be a different kind of leader, a leader that connects and cares for self, extends genuine compassion to others, and works for their common humanity. Fellows cultivate practices in mind training for increasing self-awareness, self-care and resilience, for connecting with others and working across differences, and in building solutions for generations to come.

Over the course of a year, with the support of mentors and coaches, each Fellow designs and implements an original Field Project addressing a global challenge.  Upon graduation, Fellows join a LifeLong Community, where they connect with and support each other while continuing to advance their leadership journeys.
