The 2013 Yale World Fellows Program is now open to journalists across the globe who have distinguished themselves in their profession or geography. Candidates for the fellowship should demonstrate that they are driving forces for action or effective catalysts of change. "In significant ways and in significant arenas, each must show promise of a career trajectory of increasing responsibility and impact."
There are two primary aspects to the fellowship experience on campus. First, the fellows participate fully in an academic curriculum that advances their critical-thinking and leadership skills. Second, the fellows become teachers and mentors by deepening the understanding of the entire Yale community about the complexity and diversity of the world. They guest lecture in classes, meet with student groups, deliver campus-wide lectures and contribute to informal dialogue and learning across the campus.
The program runs annually from mid-August to mid-December 2013. The application deadline is 5 December 2012. Apply here.
