Yale World Fellows creates a learning lab: a place to experiment. We bring innovative, multidisciplinary thinkers and doers from around the world to Yale for four months. We give them the space and time to step back from the intensity of their work to reflect, learn and be challenged both academically and personally.  Fellows also contribute greatly to Yale through teaching, collaboration, research and more. After their time at Yale, they go on to join a growing network of more than 250 World Fellows working across the world. They stay connected to the University, and to each other.
 
Who are they? In our annual search for Fellows, we scour the globe for people working innovatively (and often tirelessly) across sectors to bring positive change. Fellows are mid-career. They’re already questioning stale solutions and status quo strategies and coming up with new and better ways of tackling big problems. They’re dynamic, creative practitioners – disruptive thinkers, imaginers, inventors and creatives – who have already been recognized for their work. 
 
So they’re already experts in their fields when they come to us. But leadership is so much more than expertise.
