FULLY FUNDED : Apply for the UK Acumen Fellowship programme to address poverty

Applications are open for the UK Acumen Fellowship programme to address poverty

Committed to promoting social change and ending poverty, Acumen Academy includes the UK Acumen Fellowship. With the purpose of tackling issues related to poverty, this programme for reflective leadership brings together remarkable people from all backgrounds. With the help of the programme, they may become more impactful leaders and get the knowledge, abilities, and community they need to achieve this.

Fully sponsored and Inclusive: One outstanding feature of the UK Acumen Fellowship is that it is entirely sponsored, making it open to applicants from all backgrounds. Fellows come from a variety of backgrounds, address a range of topics, and live in diverse places. They are united by a common goal to create a society based on respect for human dignity. The programme distinguishes itself by prioritising values-based leadership and diversity.

The Foundry Community: Upon programme completion, Fellows join a group of peers with similar goals committed to building a society founded on dignity. They have access to funding, mentoring, and ongoing education through this broad network, which guarantees they will have lifelong support as they fight to advance social change.

With more than 17 years of experience, the Fellowship programme gives Fellow Candidates the knowledge and abilities they need to successfully lead social change. To build a community of change-makers, it blends online assignments, virtual workshops, and in-person lectures. Through the practise of new leadership techniques, the extension of influence across larger populations, and the transformation of beliefs and behaviour, the programme has an impact on individuals, organisations, and society.

Fellows become part of The Foundry, a worldwide community that reimagines achievement and addresses structural poverty by igniting Moral Leadership practises. Alumni receive resources, financial capital, and mentorship along with lifetime support.

Those who have been shortlisted are invited to attend the virtual Selection Conference, which is scheduled for January 19 and 20, 2024.
