The general public is invited to apply for Fellowships to implement innovative social enterprise business programmes in Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda and Sierra Leone.

The fellowships, which are part of the FORTY – FELLOWS Programme, seek to encourage innovations in developing market-based approaches to address Food Insecurity, Conflict and Poverty in the four countries where the Tony Blair Foundation has a strong presence

Sponsored by the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, in collaboration with the African Governance Institute and the World Food Prize Foundation, the fellowships will empower four individuals, by providing one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) each, to cover start-up funds and living expenses for one year to help launch innovative business ideas.

The Applications are open to Social Entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, under the age of forty (40) years for any one of the four fellowships until May 31, 2014, and winners will be selected by a blue ribbon panel of judges and  announced in October, 2014 at the World Food Prize dialogue in Iowa, USA.
