The Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program is a four-month, full-time residential program based out of Yale’s Jackson School of Global Affairs. The Program runs annually from mid-August to mid-December.
The Program provides World Fellows the opportunity to expand their vision, learn from each other, and grow personally and professionally. World Fellows contribute to Yale’s intellectual life, give talks and participate on panels, collaborate with peers, audit classes, and mentor students.
World Fellows are people of character, integrity, energy and talent. They are dynamic, creative, disruptive and innovative. They are selfless leaders who serve, inspire and motivate others. They have demonstrated impact, they are on the rise in their careers, and they are ambitious to grow to their full potential.
Established in 2002, the Program now has a network of nearly 400 World Fellows contributing to their communities in 91 countries, connected to each other and to Yale.
