TED invites applications for the TED Fellows Programme for Extraordinary, Multidisciplinary Individuals and innovators in the USA in 2022.
The TED Fellows Program recognizes people at work on future-shaping ideas, offering them tools to amplify the power of their vision. Each year, a new group of TED Fellows from around the world, and from every discipline, are welcomed into this international community of remarkable thinkers and doers who have shown unusual accomplishment, exceptional courage, the strength of character, and the potential to create positive change in their respective fields.
Worth of Award
- TED Fellows receive transformational support.
- The program offers them TED’s power to help articulate and amplify their vision.
- It supports TED Fellows with the individual capacity-building required to take the global stage.
- TED Fellows are also equipped with public speaking and media training, professional coaching, and educational programming.
- Yet again, they are connected to a global network of peers and industry leaders.
- The TED Fellows Program recognizes the folks working on the ground on world-changing ideas — the doers, makers, inventors, advocates, filmmakers and photographers, musicians and artists, educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, and human rights activists. If you’re at work on a future-shaping idea and over the age of 18, you should apply.
- In addition to impressive accomplishment, fine character and a good heart are also important traits looked for in TED Fellows.

- Please write clearly for a general audience and assume TED knows nothing about your field.
- The TED Fellows program is not an academic fellowship and non-traditional educations are welcome.
