The Open Society Fellowship program will fund individuals working on projects which address the Foundation's core areas of concern: human rights, government transparency, access to information, access to justice, and the promotion of civil society and social inclusion.
Fellowship projects should identify a problem not previously recognized, advance a new policy idea to address a familiar problem, or offer a new advocacy strategy. Fellows may produce books, reports, blogs, innovative public-education projects, or create a new campaign or organization. They may also host public panel discussions, travel to conferences, participate in policy debates, and should aggressively promote their ideas in public venues. Fellowship projects can include photography, outreach, and advocacy around documentary film and other forms of cultural production.
Full-time fellows based in the United States will receive a stipend of $80,000 or $100,000, depending on their work experience, seniority, and current income. Stipends will be pro-rated for part-time fellows.
