Since 2006, the NYU Reynolds Program has awarded over 60 Graduate Fellowships in Social Entrepreneurship to students from across 11 NYU schools. The fellowship program includes $25,000 for each of two years of study and an intensive two-year curricular and co-curricular program designed to help prepare fellows to be the next generation of social entrepreneurs.
Broadly speaking, the program attracts three types of changemakers:
Fellows can be at different points on these trajectories with some working to more fully develop an idea, while others may be ready to launch an idea, while still others may be ready to bring an already launched idea more fully to scale.
Regardless of the developmental stage of the idea or where a changemaker is on their social entrepreneurial trajectory,
Reynolds fellows are academically accomplished individuals from a wide variety of disciplines who have a demonstrable heritage of concern for issues of social importance, have distinguished themselves as a potential changemaker, and are committed to continuing to dedicate themselves to addressing issues of social importance in pattern breaking, sustainable and scalable ways.
