Are you a civic innovator working to solve important public problems in creative, powerful ways? The Obama Foundation Fellowship could help amplify the impact of your work.

This two-year, non-residential program will offer hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to twenty exceptional Fellows. Through four multi-day gatherings, these Fellows will collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Each Fellow will also pursue a personalized plan to take their work to the next level.

The inaugural class of Fellows will include a diverse set of community-minded rising stars who are altering the civic engagement landscape. The Obama Foundation is looking for inspiring individuals working from all angles to strengthen communities and civic life, such as organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, and journalists. Successful applicants have already demonstrated meaningful impact in their communities, but are not currently connected to the networks and resources they need to advance their work.
