About Opportunity

Interested in applying to be a LEAP (Leveraging Evidence for Action to Promote) fellows to accelerate education solutions? LEAP Fellows are education researchers and social entrepreneurs looking to support education organizations and advance evidence-based education solutions across the world.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Researchers: LEAP Research Fellows should have completed their PhD and have expertise in the learning and development field and have at least one year (and up to 10 years) of post-degree experience as an active researcher in a related area.
  • Social Entrepreneurs: LEAP Social Entrepreneur Fellows should have completed their Masters/MBA in Social Entrepreneurship, Social Impact, Social Innovation or a related field, or have held a leadership role in an entrepreneurial venture (for example, as a founder or co-founder) . Applicants should have at least 3 years of professional experience and a strong interest or experience in the general learning and development field.

Benefits


  • Selected LEAP Fellows will attend a three-day LEAPathon event where they will meet with newly-selected project host organizations, participate in mentorship and design thinking sessions, and be matched with a team of Fellows and a host organization. The 12-week project sprints will kick off in two waves: one wave will begin in October 2022 and another will begin in February 2023.

As a LEAP Fellow, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Apply your field of study to high-impact social challenges and help strengthen evidence-based education solutions across the world;
  • Network and collaborate with other LEAP Fellows, industry professionals, impact partners and leading development organizations;
  • Increase your professional visibility by working on critical, timely projects with leading education innovators and enhance your CV;
  • Supplement your income with interesting, meaningful projects and participate on a schedule that is flexible to you.

What is the role of a LEAP Fellow?

  • Fellows are staffed on a project with 1-3 other LEAP Research or Social Entrepreneur Fellows and work part-time (6-16 hours per week for 12 weeks) to address the project host’s challenge. Fellows use their shared expertise to create strategic assets for the organization such as product roadmaps, strategic plans, or research frameworks and agendas.
  • When not staffed on a project, until the Fellowship period comes to a close in June 2023, Fellows will be invited to participate in virtual network engagement opportunities with the LEAP network in order to share their expertise, reflect on the LEAP experience, and learn from the wider cohort of education and impact experts.
  • Duration: The Fellowship is a 12-month engagement, with higher and lower periods of activity depending on when the Fellow is staffed on a project (October – January or February – May).
