The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. Among the Foundations' core areas of concern are human rights, government transparency, the promotion of civil society and social inclusion. Below are some possible topic areas that fellows may explore in the coming years:
·         Global migration and the rights of displaced minorities
·         Organized crime, corruption, and state failure
·         The economic crisis and its effect on open societies
·         Movement-building and state repression in societies affected by climate change
·         The impact of new technologies on citizen access to information and justice
·         The link between governance, transparency, and economic development.

The Fellowship            The Open Society Fellowship chooses its fellows from a diverse pool of applicants that includes journalists, activists, academics, and practitioners in a variety of fields. Applicants should possess a deep understanding of their chosen subject area and a track record of professional accomplishment.

                                    Full-time fellows based in the United States will receive a stipend of $80,000 or $100,000, depending on work experience, seniority, and current income. Stipends will be prorated for part-time fellows. For fellows based elsewhere, appropriate adjustments will be made to reflect the  cost of living in those countries. The stipend does not necessarily equal the applicant's current salary. In certain cases, fellows will receive additional financial support to enable them to meet the residency expectation.

In addition to the stipend, fellows will receive a project budget. That budget may include expenses such as travel (including airfare and hotel), visa costs, part-time research assistance, conference fees and health insurance. Fellowship expenses should not include operational or programmatic costs, such as employees and physical infrastructure. The purpose of the fellowship is to support individual fellows; therefore the program will only cover individual expenses.
How to apply:                        All interested applicants should complete the online application form at and submit supporting materials for consideration
