Fellowships to attend Opportunity Collaboration: United States in May 2018 are now available! Every delegate is asked to be both a learner and a contributor. Break down unproductive silos and join us to leverage resources, share innovations, enlist allies, build coalitions and create force multipliers for poverty alleviation and social justice across the United States. Awards are made on a rolling basis, so it is advantageous to apply as early as possible.


Fellows receive a $2,200 scholarship to attend OC USA and pay a $750 registration fee to book 5 nights, shared-room accommodations. Registration includes full access to all delegate leadership programs, capacity building clinics, working discussion groups, agenda roles, organizational showcasing opportunities, pre- and post-event networking concierge services, all food and beverages, transportation to and from Palm Beach International (PBI) Airport, internet fees, onsite recreation and hotel fees. Fellows are responsible for arranging and funding their own travel by air to PBI Airport, or by land to Sandpiper Bay, Florida, which is approximately two hours north of Miami.

Eligibility Criteria


Successful fellowship applicants are high-impact, entrepreneurial for-profit and non-profit executives with a demonstrated commitment to community leadership and a track record of accomplishment in poverty alleviation and social justice. Like all delegates, fellows are catalytic leaders who by their actions and accomplishments evidence pragmatic vision, passionate tenacity, multi-sectoral thinking, adaptive leadership skills, non-ideological activism and a strong ethical grounding. References from OC Delegates are influential. Financial need is also a primary consideration for fellowship selection.
