WISE Emerging Leaders

WISE Emerging Leaders

The 2019 cohort has been announced. Please find more information here.

WISE Emerging Leaders is a yearlong fellowship program for young education practitioners to become agents of positive change in their communities. The program is built on the conviction that empowering and mentoring young talent in education is integral to supporting and elevating the work of promising initiatives in the WISE network.

Each year, WISE will collaborate with high impact organizations within the WISE community to nominate young education practitioners from their organizations or networks to participate in the fellowship. Ideal candidates for the program include young professionals or social innovators actively engaged in delivering or designing education initiatives within their organization or networks.

Selected fellows participate in a series of collaborative and interactive modules on topics ranging from ethical leadership to social innovation delivered by WISE and Ashoka. In addition to completing a residential training and online modules, fellows will contribute to their organizations by applying their new skills on a project identified by their organization and WISE.

By working together with impactful organizations and partners, our mission is to empower a new generation of education development leaders equipped to create systemic change in education.

Program Overview

The next call for nominations will open end of this year. Please stay tuned.
