WISE Emerging Leaders Fellowships

WISE Emerging Leaders Fellowships

WISE Emerging Leaders Fellowships

WISE Emerging Leaders is a nine-month fellowship program that aims to cultivate the next generation of systems leaders in education with the tools, skills, community, and mindset required to transform their communities and change systems.

WISE is seeking to collaborate with high impact organizations to nominate young education professionals from within their organizations or network to support their professional and personal development.

In addition to completing a residential training provided by WISE, fellows will contribute to their organizations by applying their new skills on a project identified prior to or during the first residential session.


Online Modules

  • Fellows will have the opportunity to partake in expert-led masterclasses and webinars on key education topics
  • Monthly feedback and reflection webinars

    First and second residential sessions

  • Fellows will participate in a three-week virtual residential session between May and June, which will be delivered by experienced facilitators. During the session, they will take part in a series of experiential workshops on topics such as:
  • Ethical and collaborative leadership
  • Wellbeing and personal development
  • Systems change in education and community building
  • Peer learning
  • Collaborative project work
  • Personal and group reflection
  • Information about the residential session dates will be communicated to the selected cohort.

    Project development

  • The selected fellows will identify a potential project with their organization or a new one during the first residential session to apply the learnings from the session throughout the rest of the fellowship.
  • Participants will work with their organization to pilot and/or implement the selected project.
  • WISE will support the project development process though tailored mentorship, training and networking opportunities. Please note that WISE does not dispense any funds to projects or individuals.
  • Fellows will also be asked to submit monthly blog posts about their ongoing work and reflections for the WEL blog. The blog posts are mandatory and selected fellows may be required to participate in other media activities/events as identified by WISE.
  • Fellows will be asked to submit a final deliverable documenting their work at the end of the program.

    Third residential session

  • Based on the work demonstrated by the fellow over the course of the program and final project deliverable, selected fellows will be invited to participate in a closing workshop and training during the last quarter of 2021, either in person or virtually.
  • WISE will only cover flights, accommodation, meals and in country transportation for the selected candidates for the residential sessions.

    Eligibility Criteria

  • WISE invites representatives of institutions, organizations, programs and networks to nominate engaged candidates with outstanding academic/professional and/or personal experiences in the field of education from your organization.

    Nominees can be part of your extended organization or branches across the world.

    The nominator must have a project idea while nominating a candidate for the nomination to be eligible.

  • WISE is looking for 15-20 outstanding young professionals identified by their organizations to join the cohort.
  • Nominees must be between the ages of 25 and 33, with demonstrated engagement in the field of education and potential for growth.
  • Nominating organizations must identify a potential project for the nominee to undertake during the year and support the nominee in developing the project during the program.
