After a rigorous selection process, Ashoka Fellows are introduced to a life-long fellowship, where every member is committed to championing new patterns of social good. We encourage Ashoka Fellows to take ownership of the network and we partner with them to co-create Ashoka’s vision of an Everyone a Changemaker world.

We understand the individual needs of social entrepreneurs vary depending on the stage of their work. Once selected, each Ashoka Fellow embarks on a tailored timeline of investments and support over their lifetime. We make sure that the Ashoka brand, the engagements we curate and facilitate, and the connections we open are valuable to each Fellow. We invite Fellows to make the most of the network through interactions that will increase their chances for deepening their social impact.

Some of the Support Fellows will enjoy include:


A Global Network

Ashoka's Network includes over 3,600 Ashoka Fellows, as well as hundreds of Changemaker Institutions, Partners and Young Changemakers. Collectively, they support the emergence of a world where each person can become a Changemaker.
