The New World Social Enterprise Fellows Program
Application for 2017 Cheng Fellow Cohort
The New World Social Enterprise Fellows Program is a pioneering fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School that prepares selected students, Cheng Fellows, to take action in advancing progress against a pressing social problem through social innovation while in school and post-graduation. The Fellowship is designed as a springboard for students preparing to lead social change through innovation in movements, organizations, businesses, and/or government upon graduation. Applicants should carefully review the website for program details prior to applying.
2017 Cohort Eligibility and Structure
The Fellowship will engage up to 15 exceptional Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard College students who are looking to be in action, dedicated, and focused in driving social change around a specific problem. All applicants must be available to attend weekly evening co-curricular sessions (one night/week) on HKS’ campus for the duration of the 2017-18 academic year and be in good academic standing for the duration of their participation.

Partners or small teams may apply, but all applicants must meet the eligibility requirements outlined above. Each person must submit an individual application.
