The Global Social Impact House will bring together 25 global social entrepreneurs, creative intrapreneurs, community alchemists and innovators who are actively working on a social impact initiative in their organizations, industries and communities.
We welcome applicants with a compelling and tested concept for social impact, or who have completed the University of Pennsylvania’s Coursera Course on Social Impact to apply and join a global community of purpose-driven leaders for a journey of connection, learning, and growth. The program begins on May 11, 2017 in the western coast of Nicaragua and concludes on May 18, 2017.
GSIH is a seven-day residential program that provides fellows with the tools, community support, and training they need to advance their ventures. Workshops are customized to the needs of fellows and explore advanced concepts in business models, design thinking, and leadership. The program is also designed to help fellows build meaningful, global connections while living together in an inspirational host location.
The Center for Social Impact Strategy at the University of Pennsylvania will provide full scholarships to every fellow, which includes accommodation and food. However, fellows are responsible for covering travel and visa-related expenses to and from the host location.
Apply by the deadline, February 20, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
