r a short TEDTalk, and collaborate with their peers, among other benefits. Their TEDTalk may be selected for posting on TED.com, where it has the potential to be viewed hundreds of thousands of times. They will also participate in the TED community throughout the next year, by telling their ongoing stories on the TED Fellows blog, being featured in the online Fellows directory and participating in a private social network.
Later this year, TED will choose 20 of this year's TED and TEDGlobal Fellows to be TED Senior Fellows. They will participate in five additional conferences, for a total of six over a course of three years, with additional benefits.
The TED Fellows program seeks individuals 21-40 (though anyone 18 and over can apply) with demonstrated remarkable achievement in their field of endeavor. The program focuses on candidates from five regions: Asia/Pacific, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Middle East. The TED Fellows program is made possible by the visionary support of the Bezos family, Sherpalo Ventures, the Harnisch Foundation, the Case Foundation, private donors and Nokia.
