FELLOWS

Fellows are participants in the GCI Fellowship.

They are outstanding and engaged global citizens from around the world with an innate commitment to build a better tomorrow and catalyze positive change.

THE FELLOWSHIP

Our 10-month Fellowship equips young global citizens with the mindset, skills and resources necessary to become effective and ethical global leaders.

The GCI Fellowship 2021 has been cancelled. GCI looks forward to welcoming a new cohort of Fellows in 2022. For the summer of 2021, GCI will be introducing an exciting online program: The GCI Global Challenge.

"GCI cultivates a diverse community of global leaders who can, together and in collaboration with others, meaningfully advance inclusion, freedom, and justice for all, and tackle the challenges brought about by globalization, as identified in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. This is important work because we need, urgently, more leaders like these."
