Singularity University Impact Fellowship Application

During a year-long engagement, fellows will:
  • First, explore how to drive social impact by engaging the exponential technologies that will shape our future.
  • Then, leverage those transformational tools, ideas, and connections to inspire and activate your local community and the broader SU community.
  • Throughout the fellowship, bring new perspectives to the conversation.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Placement in an SU educational program depends on your application date.
Please see the Impact Fellows website for details.

Singularity University Impact Fellows is open to those who have not previously attended an SU program. It is our intention to expose new global changemakers to SU programming who have not yet had the opportunity, especially those who do not have the ability to pay.
