Vital Voices Signature Programs and Fellowships that are currently open for application
Vital Voices searches the world for creative and fearless women leaders with daring vision for change. We then partner with them to make that vision a reality, often through our signature programs in economic empowerment, protecting human rights and boosting women’s political participation.
With the support of P&G, Vital Voices’ Voices that Inspire Fellowship (Voces Que Inspiran), supports young women who are making a positive impact in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Panama. Through the Fellowship, we work to increase the opportunities, leadership capacity, network and resources for young women; sparking a global movement to empower young women, create sustainable change, and transform the meaning of leadership. All Fellows must be 18 to 25 years old when they apply, and the participants chosen must attend a 2-day, virtual kick-off on July 17-18, 2021 as well as attend an in-person gathering in their country if it is safe to gather in the fall. Following the virtual trainings, all participants are eligible to apply for individual grants to support their social impact projects in their communities.
