RADIUS Fellowship

What is the Fellowship Program?

RADIUS believes the future requires a transformed economy that is dynamic, just, sustainable, and resilient.

Located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, the RADIUS Fellowship works toward this vision by supporting young and emerging Metro Vancouver social innovators working at the intersection of equity, social innovation, and systems change.

During this intensive three-month experience, you will meet with your cohort weekly to learn from people working towards change in their communities and advance the difficult work of social innovation and systems change, whether your starting place is as an intrapreneur, community leader, entrepreneur, policy advocate, or otherwise. You’ll bring forth your lived experiences and better understand your role as an activator of social and economic change in the systems you are motivated to impact.

We are not currently accepting applications for the RADIUS Fellowship.

Are You a RADIUS Fellow?

We are looking for the next generation of untamed social innovators early in their changemaking journey who demonstrate relentless dedication to creating positive, sustainable impact in their communities. 

You are passionately committed to driving deep and meaningful economic transformation, with an emphasis on elevating the perspectives, ideas, and leadership of communities, particularly centring the voices, ideas, and work of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour.

You feel aligned with the RADIUS principles. Because we work to create an economy that truly works for everyone, we strive to centre the voices, agency, and choices of communities that are historically, persistently and systemically marginalized. We also work daily to embody our principles in our strategy, programming, practices, relationships, and work culture. We hope these set the foundation and encourage applicants who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Colour and other marginalized populations to apply.

The Fellowship program suits young and emerging leaders who self-identify as community changemakers, social innovators, social entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs. We encourage people working in or interested in public, private and social sector careers, community leaders, future entrepreneurs, and policymakers to apply. 

You are ready to make a three-month commitment to developing your leadership capacity, building your peer community and professional networks, and generously supporting your fellow cohort members. You should be committed to developing an intervention, idea, or concept while receiving feedback from peers and program hosts (whether that be a venture, an intrapreneurial activity, a policy question, a project, or an idea you are hoping to dig into more deeply) and which can be followed through with action. A curious and collaborative mindset and an ability to socially locate oneself within systems are prerequisites.

RADIUS Fellows will:

  • gather in person for weekly cohort sessions;
  • connect with one another and those in the RADIUS network;
  • give and receive regular feedback within the cohort;
  • learn with leaders, peers, and innovators;
  • be profiled on the RADIUS website and social media channels;
  • have an opportunity to share their initiative with the broader RADIUS community; and
  • connect, discuss, and collaborate with a collection of amazing other Fellows.
