Since 2017, each year a cohort of students are selected among Global Learning and Leadership Program as Fellows. Students go through a 6-week online training program. After completing the online training, they attend the Silicon Valley Meetup in March, where they connect with one another and build on the learnings from the online training. Fellows receive year-round mentorship and represent the program and their schools at global conferences and events.
What University Innovation Fellows Do
Fellows represent the student voice in the global conversation about the future of education. They become deeply familiar with the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem at their schools, working closely with faculty, administrators and community stakeholders. They develop system thinking skills and learn a variety of design approaches that support their work as change agents.
Based on their deep understanding of the landscape of learning opportunities available at their schools, Fellows design and implement activities to enhance that landscape. 1,500 Fellows (and counting!) at 185 schools around the world have created innovation and makerspaces, courses and extracurricular resources.
