Call for Applications: WISE Emerging Leaders Fellowship for Young Leaders in Education | Fully Funded 2023

WISE Emerging Leaders is a nine-month fellowship program for the next generation of educational leaders who want to start a learning path that develops the perspectives, abilities, and strategies required to thrive, foster communities, and change educational systems. It is about to start its fifth year in a row.

In an era when multiple crises are disrupting education, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the burnout epidemic, and the ecological collapse, WISE believes it is more crucial than ever to create inspiring and nourishing spaces for education leaders to connect, learn from one another, and work together for a greater good. The structural, systemic, intrapersonal, and interpersonal levels must all shift for education systems to be transformed. Leaders that inspire innovation and systemic change are those who lead with self-awareness, compassion, and creativity, nurture their own wellness and the wellbeing of their teams, and weave people and projects together.
