The Pearson Fellowship for Social Innovation supports exemplary young leaders around the globe who are using their ingenuity, passion, and energy to build better lives for themselves and their communities. The awards are granted to the most promising community service projects developed through Sprout.
Two International Fellows each receive $5,000 to help launch their projects. Ten additional Regional Fellows receive a $1,000 award. All Pearson Fellows also receive one-on-one mentoring from experienced social innovators who consult with them as they implement their project plans. Integral to the program is a special online community where the Fellows can network with and learn from their peers, and where they’ll have access to special online materials and training designed to help them take their projects from planning stage to reality.
