TED 2023 Fellows Program for Exceptional Leaders

Every year, an open application process chooses a new group of remarkable, diverse individuals for the TED Fellows program. We look for up-and-coming innovators who are making bold, creative work in their professions.

We’ve come to know and support some of the smartest, most ambitious thinkers, change-makers, and culture-shakers from practically every discipline and corner of the globe since starting the TED Fellows program.

TED Fellows are dedicated to making the world a better place via their inventive work, whether it’s discovering new galaxies, leading social movements, or making waves in environmental protection. You might be one of them.
