Results Fellowship Program

The Results Fellowship is a 10-month learning and volunteering opportunity for emerging leaders.

 

The Results Fellowship is a 10-month program designed for advocates over 18 years to harness the power of their voice, sharpen their advocacy and organising skills, and take action with other dynamic leaders. Results Fellows learn how to work with the media, their communities, and policymakers to end global poverty.

The Results Fellowship is a transformational experience.

 

You will be part of a community of like-minded people from around the country and globally with access to visionary minds and leading experts in global health and international development i.e. Julia Gillard AC, Former Prime Minister of Australia and the former Chair of Global Partnership for Education, H.E. Dr. Jakaya Kikwete, Former President of Tanzania, Prof. Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysus of WHO, and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis of the Poor People’s Campaign.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am an existing Results Advocate. Can I apply to be a Fellow?

All existing Results Advocates are strongly encouraged to apply. The Fellowship Program is a great opportunity for existing Advocates to deepen their understanding of our campaigns and broaden their skill set as a leader.

 

What are the requirements of the program?

Please see the selection criteria above.

 

How will these skills and knowledge be helpful for my future career?

Leadership, campaigning, and advocacy skills are 100% transferable to whichever career path you are interested in, but particularly in advocacy, campaigning, community organising, and international development. Fellows from the broader Results community in the US and Canada have gone on to work for the World Bank, federal politicians, other international non-governmental organisations, universities, etc.

 

Do I have to stay in the same State/Territory that I started the Fellowship in?

Yes. The primary responsibility for you as a Fellow is to create a strong and sustainable advocacy group in your own State/Territory. Read more about our groups here.

 

How much does this program cost?

The program overall is free. Results will subsidise the cost of training and travel to the mid-program Leaders Retreat. However, you will be required to pay a registration fee of $100 per person. Partial scholarships will also be available and you will be eligible to apply based on financial need.

 

Do I need any experience to participate in the Fellowship?

Not at all! Your passion and commitment to the cause is more important than any existing experience or qualification. However, experiences in similar advocacy or social justice-focused work may be helpful for you in undertaking the responsibilities as our Fellow.

 

Can I extend my Fellowship?

All Fellows are encouraged to stay within our Advocates Network either as a Group Member or an Alumnus of the Fellowship. At the end of this cohort, we will evaluate the program and inform you of further leadership opportunities. There may also be capacity for you to stay as the Group Coordinator of the group you helped set up in 2022 as we scale up our network. Any transition plan will be discussed and supported by the Grassroots Engagement Coordinator prior to the graduation of this cohort.
