Dalai Lama Fellows Program for Emerging Leaders 2023

Deadline : February 1, 2022

Applications for the Dalai Lama Fellows Program for Emerging Leaders 2022 are now open. Dalai Lama Fellows offers emerging leaders a rigorous, interdisciplinary program on ways to be a different kind of leader, a leader that connects and cares for self, extends genuine compassion to others, and works for our common humanity. Fellows learn practices for increasing self-awareness, self-care and resilience, for connecting with others and working across differences, and in building solutions for generations to come.

Over the course of a year, with the support of mentors and coaches, each Fellow implements an original Field Project addressing a global challenge. Upon graduation, Fellows join a Lifelong Community, where they connect with and support each other while continuing to advance their leadership journeys. The fellowship is seeking 20 to 25 young social innovators for the 2022 program.

They seek to broaden and deepen emerging leaders’ perspectives on what’s best for both their communities and the world as a whole now and for generations to come, calling on them to think and behave differently, and to seek realistic, innovative, integrated, and expansive ways to address local and global challenges in interconnected manners.


Selected candidates for the fellowship will receive the following benefits

  • Immersion in the distinctive yearlong Head, Heart, Hands online leadership curriculum.
  • One-on-one and small-group coaching to support their projects in social change and personal development as contemplative and collaborative leaders.
