Open Society Fellowship
The Open Society Fellowship supports scholars, journalists, activists, policy experts and others to work on projects that inspire public and policy debates as well as, sharpen OSI’s thinking, question our assumptions, and broaden our understanding of pivotal social problems.
The fellowship is open to individuals from around the world. We are looking for innovative thinkers working on human rights, international migration, government transparency and accountability, economic governance and development, organized crime and drug policy, citizen empowerment and participation, access to justice and information, and other areas of interest to OSI. Fellows' projects may include books, articles, online media, efforts to seed new campaigns and organizations as well as more culturally-driven products.
A fellowship project might identify a problem that has not previously been recognized, develop new policy ideas to address familiar problems, or offer a new advocacy strategy. Fellows should take advantage of the considerable intellectual and logistical resources of the Open Society Institute and expect to contribute meaningfully to OSI's thinking in return.
Proposals are reviewed throughout the year. The fellowship does not fund programs of study or dissertation research. More details on guidelines, eligibility criteria and current fellows are available at http://www.soros.org/initiatives/fellowship. Please write to email@example.com with any questions.
