Guest blogger Logan McClure is the Program Officer for the TED Fellows program.
The TED Fellows program is looking for 20 outstanding multidisciplinary innovators from around the world – artists, scientists, bloggers, filmmakers, musicians, activists, and more.
The 2010 TEDGlobal Fellows will join the TED community in Oxford, UK July 10 – 17, 2010 for TEDGlobal, "And Now the Good News." As part of the Fellowship, TEDGlobal Fellows will receive conference admission, round-trip transportation and room and board at the conference site. Fellows also participate in a two-day pre-conference where they can present a short talk or video which will be considered for TED.com. Other benefits include elite skills-building courses taught by world experts, social opportunities and surprise extras.
The TED Fellows program is an international fellowship program designed to nurture great ideas and help them spread around the world. Each year, organizers of the program select a group of 40 individuals who show world-changing potential to participate in either the TED or TEDGlobal Conference. At the end of the year, organizers will select 15 of these Fellows to participate in an extended two-year Senior Fellowship, bringing them to five consecutive conferences. The principal goal of the program is to empower the Fellows to effectively communicate their work to the world.
The TED Fellows program focuses on attracting applicants living or working in five parts of the globe: the Asia/Pacific region, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Middle East, with consideration given to applicants from the rest of the world. (Applicants must be proficient in English.) The program seeks remarkable thinkers and doers who have shown unusual accomplishment, exceptional courage, moral imagination and the potential to increase positive change in their respective fields. The program focuses on innovators in technology, entertainment, design, science, film, art, music, entrepreneurship and the NGO community, among other pursuits.
