Applications for the Cordes Fellowship Program are now accepted. This program is exclusively available for those who are high-impact, innovative, entrepreneurial for-profit and nonprofit executives with a demonstrated commitment to social justice and poverty alleviation. Financial needs are also primary consideration. Expires in 78 days!
If you are an exceptional social entrepreneur or nonprofit leader engaged in building sustainable solutions to poverty and injustice globally, the Cordes Fellowship provides an opportunity to participate as a full Delegate at the Opportunity Collaboration in Cancun, Mexico in October. The purpose of the Cordes Fellowship is to open doors, minds and networks for emerging social entrepreneurs and nonprofit executives; enrich OC with new, emerging leaders; and infuse OC discussions with a diversity of perspectives.
- Cordes Fellows selected from non-OECD countries (developing economies) receive a $2,950 award (fully covering their OC Global registration) and pay a refundable $250 administration fee, which is returned after the non-OECD fellow attends OC Global.
Cordes Fellows from OECD countries (developed economies) receive a $2,100 award (partially covering their OC Global registration) and pay a $850 registration fee.
- The Cordes Fellowship provides all-inclusive room-sharing accommodations for 5 days, meals, full access to leadership programs, capacity building clinics, working discussion groups, agenda roles, organizational showcasing opportunities, pre- and post-event networking concierge services, transportation to and from Cancun International Airport (CUN), internet fees, onsite recreation and resort fees. Most importantly, they will spend five 5 days connecting with over 400 of the world’s most passionate leaders.
- All Cordes Fellows are responsible for their own roundtrip airfare and obtaining all necessary travel documents, including a travel visa from the Mexican government, if required. The OC provides Cordes Fellows with a formal invitation letter to use with immigration authorities.
