Results Canada Fellowship program

the next generation of advocates and leaders

The Fellowship class of 2021 is now full. Bookmark this page and sign up to not miss out on any details for the 2022 Fellowship recruitment (Fall 2021).

Launched in January 2021, the Results Canada Education and Advocacy Fellowship Program is a 12-month hands-on advocacy and leadership training program for volunteers that will develop their skills in generating the political will to end extreme poverty. It is open to individuals aged 15 years and older who are based in Canada, and who want to go deeper in their learning and commitment to make meaningful impact.

After a competitive and selective process, 31 individuals from 8 different provinces were selected for the 2021 Fellowship program. Fellows are a part of Results’ volunteer network and meet virtually as a group to develop their leadership, communication and advocacy skills. They deepen their understanding of global health and extreme poverty in low and middle income countries, take action in the form of writing to the media (letters to the editor and op-eds), voice opinions on social media, and engage with federal government decision makers to guide them towards decisions that give people living in poverty the health, education and opportunity they need to thrive. Backed by the in-depth research and legislative expertise of Results Canada staff and partners, Results Fellows will realize the incredible power they possess to use their voices.
