The Soros Equality Fellowship seeks to support individual leaders influencing and transforming the racial justice field.

Through Soros Equality Fellowship, Open Society aims to provide a network of leaders, representing the diversity of experiences, with the resources to address racial inequality as well as the space they need to imagine a more equitable future.

A successful project should identify a challenge and propose a critical intervention that will meaningfully address the systems that reinforce inequities and discrimination in the United States.

Eligibility Criteria

Fellowship Term and Time Commitment

Applicants must be able to devote at least 35 hours per week to the project if awarded a Fellowship. Also, the project must be the applicant’s only full-time work during the course of the Fellowship.

Projects Based Outside the United States

Applicants may be based outside the United States, provided their work directly pertains to a U.S. racial justice issue. Moreover, applicants must be able to demonstrate proficiency in spoken and written English.

Joint Applications

Up to two individuals can apply jointly for a Soros Equality Fellowship. However, joint applications will share one fellowship award. You should complete a joint application together as a single submission. For joint applicants, the “full-time work” requirement does not apply to each applicant. All other restrictions associated with an individual application still apply.


Projects that include electioneering, lobbying, or other activity that does not fall within IRS 501(c)(3) guidelines will not be funded.
