2012 Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation
The Fellows were chosen based on the most promising and well-prepared plans developed while participants in TakingITGlobal’s Sprout E-Course—an online social entrepreneurship course that helps young people to imagine, plan, and develop effective and scalable social innovation projects. Guided by mentors, participants developed practical, step-by-step visions for a wide variety of initiatives that addressed issues of economic opportunity, education, health, human rights, access to technology and the environment.
A partnership with TakingITGlobal, the Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation enables the outstanding participants of Sprout to turn their plans into real-world projects and help build a better future for their communities.
The winners will each receive a $1,000 grant, along with mentoring and training, and strategic tools and resources to help ensure the successful start of their projects. To learn more go to http://sprout.tigweb.org.
