    About the Fellowship

    We seek passionate, talented activists to take immediate action for long-term impact.

    The Roddenberry Fellowship is a new 12-month program for activists from across the country who are working to protect the most vulnerable and to make the US a more inclusive and equitable place to live. Twenty Fellows will be selected to receive $50,000 each, as well as tailored support, to help implement a project or initiative in one of four areas:

    • Civil Rights
    • Climate Change and Environmental Justice
    • Immigration and Refugee Rights
    • LGBTQIA and Women’s Rights

    The Foundation does not aim to dictate how Fellows plan to bring about change on a chosen issue. It’s up to each Fellow, but we are interested in impact. Increasing one’s Twitter following or getting 1,000 likes is not, in and of itself, considered impactful. We also favor innovative approaches: projects that push boundaries, are cross-sectoral, challenge tradition, seek new ways of approaching systemic and entrenched problems, or leverage specific (timely) opportunities in unconventional ways.

    As a Fellow you will receive:

    • $50,000 to support an initiative that has direct impact in your field
    • One-on-one professional coaching and development opportunities
    • Virtual collaboration sessions to provide ongoing advisement, support, and training
    • An in-person three-day retreat in February 2018 with the entire cohort, community leaders, and coaches


    Application ProcessApplying for the Fellowship is a two-step process. In the first round, you’ll be invited to provide some basic information about who you are and what you’re working on. If selected for the second round, you’ll be asked for a more detailed account of your plans and what you aim to achieve.
