Accelerate your work in 2018: Fellowship, Prizes, Workshop

We’re thrilled to open up applications for the 2018 Foresight Fellowship, Feynman Prizes and Student Award, and Spring workshop starting now!

The 2018 Foresight Fellowship

After the excellent strides by our inaugural class of 2017 Foresight Fellows, we are glad to continue the Foresight Fellowship in 2018 to help committed change-makers create the future humanity needs.

Specific benefits to Fellows during the program:

  • Sponsorship to attend at least one invite-only Foresight workshop or event
  • Connection to Fellows and mentors
  • Representation on our website, in our newsletter, and in a short video on their work
  • Other opportunities to increase their skills to succeed in their endeavors

We’ll consider all applications, but especially welcome applications in the fields of Nanotechnology (molecular machines, atomically-precise construction), Artificial Intelligence & Artificial General Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Blockchains, and Longevity.
