The search is on for the 25 TED Fellows who will attend TED2010 in Long Beach, California, February 9-13. We’re looking for world-changing innovators from around the globe and from all disciplines.

The Fellows program brings new and dynamic individuals into the TED community and with its help, amplifies the impact of their remarkable projects. Fellows are drawn from technology, entertainment, design, the sciences, engineering, humanities, the arts, economics, business, journalism, entrepreneurship and NGOs. We value achievement over credentials — making and doing over diplomas and certificates. Learn more about the current TED Fellows.

From Tom Rielly, director of the TED Fellows program:
“What the world needs now is 25 amazing individuals from all over the world to form our fourth group of incredible makers and doers that we call TED Fellows. The program has proven life-changing for the vast majority of 2009’s participants. It’s time to throw your hat in the ring.

TED Fellows attend without charge and participate in a two-day pre-conference where they can present a short talk or video,elite skills-building courses taught by world experts, social opportunities and surprise extras.

The TED Fellows program is accepting fellowship applications through Sept. 25, 2009. TED Fellows may apply themselves or be nominated by another person. Follow this link to apply. To nominate a candidate, email fellows@ted.com.
