Fully Funded TED Fellows Programme in Canada 2020

The TEDGlobal Fellowships is designed to bring together young trailblazers from a variety of fields who have shown unusual accomplishment and courage. Instead of business people, professionals, policy wonks, and government officials, the TED Fellows program focus on doors, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, NGO heads, and human rights activists.

Twenty fellows will be selected to attend the TED Global conference to be held in April 2020. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend pre-conference programs with training by speakers.

  • TED looks for different applicants than many other leadership-oriented programs.

Scholarship Requirements

TED Fellows are selected by the program staff, with extensive reference checking and consultation with experts across all fields. Selections are made by the group as a whole, not by individuals.

There is no algorithm for how we select our TED Fellows. We select Fellows based on their accomplishments in their respective fields, the potential impact of their work and also, most importantly, their character. The ideal applicant is multidisciplinary in their pursuits and is at a moment in their career to maximize the support of the TED Community.
