GLG Social Impact Fellowship
The Social Impact Fellowship leverages GLG’s membership of subject-matter experts to help top social entrepreneurs inform their organization’s critical strategic, operational, and technical challenges, at no cost. Over the two-year Fellowship, ambitious and visionary nonprofit and social enterprise leaders learn in tailored interactions with experts across GLG’s membership - and with each other - to drive organizational growth and impact.
High-touch strategic support from GLG Research professionals provides Fellows and their leadership teams with thought partners, backed by a membership of 500,000 subject-matter experts. GLG understands that realizing big visions requires a talented team. While in-person Fellowship events are for Fellows themselves, teams receive access to GLG’s suite of services as well.
Fellows lead organizations at critical inflection points, ready to pursue a new phase of growth or iteration in their work. By engaging with GLG experts, participating Fellows and their teams realize their visions more efficiently.

Fellow Selection Criteria
It takes time to partner with GLG effectively. For that reason, we carefully select Fellows adept at maximizing resources and with necessary support structures in place to enable them to pursue strategic milestones in organizational growth.

» Eligible Organizations
• Nonprofit organizations with minimum operating budget of $1M and maximum of $12M
• Mission-driven for-profits with annual operating budget under $500,000
• Hybrid organizations of comparable size
» At an inflection point
• Organizations that are a good fit for GLG’s Fellowship are no longer in early stages of development and leadership team members are ready to pursue ambitious growth plans. They have proven the concept of their impact and implemented their program in an initial (set of) site(s).
When they come to GLG, they are looking to scale significantly, launch a new product based on the core principles of their initial model, or otherwise iterate on the impact they’ve established to date. Think of it as an organization’s move from 2.0 to 3.0.
