The Global Social Impact House brings together 22 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. Join a global community of purpose-driven leaders for a journey of connection, learning, and growth. The next program takes place January 6-12, 2019.
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.
The only prerequisite for admission is completing CSIS’ free online course in social impact strategy.
