About Obama Foundation Fellows

The Obama Foundation Fellows are a diverse set of leaders who bring a community-centered approach to science, criminal justice, healthcare, education, the arts, and more. Together they model the powerful truth that each of us has a role to play in civic life.

The two-year, non-residential Obama Fellowship offers hands-on training, resources, and leadership development to help Fellows scale the impact of their work. Fellows participate in four multi-day gatherings where they collaborate with each other, connect with potential partners, and collectively push their work forward. Throughout the program, each Fellow pursues a personalized plan to leverage the Fellowship experience to take their work to the next level.


Who can apply

 The fellowship is looking for people demonstrate the following characteristics 

  • Civic innovators

Fellows are working alongside their communities to solve important public problems in creative and meaningful ways.

  • Discipline diverse

As organizers, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, and more, Fellows illustrate the power of drawing upon diverse talents and approaches to drive meaningful change.

  • At a tipping point in their work

Fellows have already demonstrated direct and meaningful impact in their communities, gaining recognition among their peers for their contributions. Now, they stand at a breakthrough moment in their careers.


  • Talented, but not connected

The Fellowship is designed to support leaders who have not already benefited from prestigious opportunities or global attention. We’re excited to lift up civic innovators who are not currently connected to the networks and resources they need to advance their work.

  • Good humans

Fellows demonstrate the values of the Obama Foundation and are eager to participate in the Fellowship community now and in the future.


All individuals from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.
