Fellowship Overview

This winter, Wild Gift will select a group of environmental entrepreneurs for a fellowship rooted in wilderness-based programs that develop leadership and business skills while building a lifelong support network. Since its founding 20 years ago, Wild Gift has supported over 70 environmental entrepreneurs working around the world.

During the pandemic, Wild Gift has run several safe and successful treks and we continue to work closely with our outfitter to build appropriate safety precautions into our deep wilderness trek. Examples include sleeping in individual tents, shifting how we eat meals, and maintaining access to emergency services if necessary.

Apply by January 5 at wildgift.org/apply.

If selected, your Wild Gift fellowship will include:

  • Three-week guided deep wilderness backpacking trek (May 2022; arrive in Salt Lake City, Utah May 13).
  • 10-week virtual fellowship (March-May 2022). The virtual fellowship will meet once per week for two hours per session. Sessions will include a combination of business and leadership workshops designed to support venture development and sessions dedicated to fellow development. 
  • A virtual and/or in-person celebration with Wild Gift donors and our broader network (date and time TBD following trek). 
  • Lifetime membership in the vibrant Wild Gift Network that includes alumni, mentors, and supporters. All alumni are encouraged to attend the annual wilderness alumni retreat and celebration (timing TBD in Fall).  

Eligible candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • U.S. or Canadian citizen
  • Between the ages of 21 and 35 as of September 1, 2022
  • Started (or intends to start) a social or environmental venture that will lead to a better world
  • Interested in and available for a wilderness-based leadership program that includes a 3-week backcountry trek
  • Basic physical fitness for carrying a pack while walking outdoors on uneven and rough terrain
