Fully Funded The Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program for Mid-career Emerging Global Leaders

The Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program enable extraordinary individuals, from across the globe and from diverse disciplines, to increase their capacity to make the world a better place.

Each year, the Program selects a diverse cohort of World Fellows to spend four months together in residence at Yale University to grow intellectually, share knowledge, strengthen skills and expand networks.

World Fellows are people of character, integrity, energy and talent. They are dynamic, creative, disruptive and innovative. They are selfless leaders who serve, inspire and motivate others. They have demonstrated impact, they are on the rise in their careers, and they are ambitious to grow to their full potential.

Established in 2002, the Program now has a network of over 400 World Fellows contributing to their communities in 96 countries, connected to each other and to Yale.
