The Voqal Fellowship is a talent and technology accelerator for tomorrow’s social entrepreneurs. It’s designed for young entrepreneurs, change-makers and thought leaders who earnestly desire to launch their next “big idea” that will transform progressive politics or remedy a social inequity.

Brief Overview of Voqal Fellowship

The Voqal Fellowship is an investment in a new generation of social entrepreneurs. Fellows will receive financial resources and mentoring to help bring an early stage idea to life. The Voqal Fellowship is an opportunity for young innovators to test assumptions, research target audiences and build strong business plans.

Ideal applicants will have a specific issue or challenge they are looking to address over the course of their fellowship. Projects can be broad in scope, or a simple tool that will help resolve a social inequity or lead to progressive social change.

Resources provided

Voqal Fellows will receive a $30,000 stipend and will be expected to complete a project in six months. Candidates must have three-to-five years of work experience and may not be currently enrolled in a graduate program. The fellowship is intended to provide an opportunity to build out an idea or concept that would not be possible to accomplish with a full-time job. Qualifying fellows may also be eligible to receive an additional stipend to help offset the cost of personal health insurance.

Fellows are paired with a mentor, a professional well established in the fellow’s field who is available to share his or her expertise and provide support.

Eligible candidates

Ideal candidates for the fellowship are driven, tech-savvy social change agents who thrive under self-direction. We are recruiting creative thinkers with a track record of advancing social change and/or using innovative solutions to help communities.
