Ariane de Rothschild Fellowship | Call for applications

Applications have re-launched for the 9th Ariane de Rothschild Fellowship program.

What is the AdR Fellowship?

The AdR Fellowship represents a unique experience for entrepreneurs, social innovators and those who practice doing business while at the same time doing good, particularly (but not exclusively) from a Jewish and Muslim cultural background, who demonstrate a proven commitment towards inclusion and forging bridges to other communities while at the same time strengthening the sustainability of their organization/ enterprise or business. 

This is an amazing opportunity to spend one week at Windsor Castle’s, St. George’s House in the UK to network and work on your project with other entrepreneurs, all expenses paid. 

The mission:

The mission of the Ariane de Rothschild Fellowship is to forge bridges across boundaries between minority communities in Europe and North America, particularly (but not exclusively) Jewish and Muslim. Over time, this is being achieved through building a network of entrepreneurs and community leaders invested in empowering pluralistic societies, nurturing wisdom and collaborative leadership.

What the program consists of:

  • Impact-driven training in innovative entrepreneurship
  • Creative scholarship in social sciences
  • Cross-cultural leadership

Applicants they're looking for:

The Fellowship focuses on entrepreneurs from North America and Europe, especially from Jewish and Muslim communities, who demonstrate a proven commitment towards inclusion while at the same time strengthening the sustainability of their organization.

In particular:

  • Those who demonstrate convincingly their potential for both economic self-sufficiency and social impact
    Have at least a tested proof of concept or (even better) a solid track-record in developing a socially impactful business in wide-ranging sectors ( housing, food, education, art, health, environment, technology…)
    Demonstrate a commitment to empower under-served communities, reduce isolation and build collaboration with society at large.
