The 2012 Call for Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation Applications is Open!


The 12 Pearson Fellows of 2011 brought projects to reality on three continents in various categories like human rights, technology, health, environment, and education.

We’ve already received such strong response from the announcement of this year’s Pearson Prize for Higher Education, I thought it might be right to spread the word about the Pearson Foundation’s other youth recognition program: the 2012 Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation.

Now in its second year, The Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation supports promising social change projects created by youth leaders who are part of one of our favorite international partners: TakingITGlobal.

The application period for this award—which supports young people who have completed the Sprout eCourse also developed in partnership with TakingITGlobal—concludes at the end of March. The Fellowship offers seed grants, one-on-one mentoring, peer support, and online resources for these leaders to launch their projects.
