World Economic Forum Global Leadership Fellowship Program (Fully Funded)

Call Deadline: Ongoing

Program Overview 

The GLF programme combines academic inspiration from leading universities, on the job training through the Forum’s engagement with global challenges, and individual development and executive coaching support. The three-year learning journey is designed to provide Fellows with the tools, frameworks, and experiences required to drive systems-level change through public-private cooperation. The programme helps Fellows discover, understand, and develop three dimensions of leadership: self, others, and systems.


The journey starts with the individual (self): understanding motivations, purpose, and values, as well as the desire to lead, learn and understand the perspective of others. Leaders need to know who they are and what they stand for; they need to be able to recognize what strengths they can leverage and the potential obstacles that will hinder their impact.

  1. I cling on to listening to the news update speak about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you tell me please, where could i acquire some?

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
