2018 Cordes Fellowship Applications Open!
Posted on November 8, 2017
The Cordes Foundation is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 2018 Cordes Fellowship through January 31, 2018.
The Cordes Fellowship provides ~60 exceptional social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders the opportunity to participate as full delegates in the Opportunity Collaboration, taking place October 14-19, 2018 in Cancún, Mexico. Successful applicants are high-impact, innovative, entrepreneurial for-profit and nonprofit executives with a demonstrated commitment to alleviating global poverty and injustice.
The Opportunity Collaboration convenes a community of 400+ global leaders building sustainable solutions to poverty and injustice. Social entrepreneurs, innovative nonprofit executives, grant-makers, impact investors, corporate and academic field-leaders, and aligned media come together for a unique five-day retreat (un-conference style: no PowerPoints, plenaries or presentations) to solve common challenges and spark new opportunities.
The Cordes Fellowship welcomes a diverse pool of applicants and strives to achieve a wide representation of countries, ethnicities, genders, sectors, etc. In order to ensure participation from organizations with less adequate resources, financial need is a primary consideration.
