Echoing Green Fellowships for Social Entrepreneurs: Deadline Dec. 1

Are you an aspiring social entrepreneur who needs some support getting your idea of the ground? Echoing Green awards 20 fellowships for social entrepreneurs each year. Fellows receive up to $90,000 in seed funding and technical support to turn their innovative ideas into sustainable social change organizations.

If you're interested, you better get cracking 'cause the deadline to apply is December 1st 5 PM EST!

You kind find more information about the Echoing Green Fellowship at:

During the most recent episode of Echoing Green's Be Bold Podcast (which I host) Lara Galinsky, the Vice President of Strategy and Communications, answers questions about the process like:
  • What is the Echoing Green Fellowship?
  • What are the application requirements?
  • What are common mistakes in the application process?
  • What additional resources does Echoing Green provide to applicants?
You can listen to the Be Bold podcast online, or subscribe via iTunes.

You can also find additional support and answers to your application questions on the Ask Echoing Green blog, or by watching videos of former Fellows (Mark Hanis, Chris Myers Asch, Bethany Robertson, and John Alford) answering frequently asked applicant questions on the Echoing Green YouTube Channel.

Echoing Green recommends that you find a coach to help you with your application. They've created an Applicant Coaching Guide, and a slideshow about effective coaching strategies.

Good luck!
