Hello! Welcome to the application process for the 2019 edition of the Young Water Fellowship.

The Programme aims to empower 10 young leaders like you to turn their initiatives in social enterprises that tackle water, sanitation and hygiene, water pollution and/or water scarcity issues at a community level.

The Young Water Fellowship offers you support in 3 ways:
TRAINING: Selected Fellows will be invited to participate in Cewas' Start-up Training Programme.
MENTORSHIP: You will be assigned mentors that will support you in the first steps of your social enterprise.
SEED-FUNDING: You will have opportunities to receive seed-funding (up to €5000) for the first stages of your social enterprise.

Before applying, please read the Terms of Reference which will provide you with information about the content and the eligibility criteria of the programme. Once you have checked that our Fellowship fits your needs and that you are eligible, we strongly encourage you to read the application guidelines.

To apply, you will need to record a 2 min. video describing your initiative and the problem it seeks to address and provide us the link to watch it or download it (in YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc) and fill in the questions about your project and yourself. No answer about yourself is right or wrong: what we value the most is honesty in the answers.

Please notice that the form does not allow you to change your answers once submitted.
You can download the applications questions HERE if you want to work on them offline.

Only complete applications (to all 47 questions), with detailed answers, will be considered. One-line answers to questions that ask for a description are considered incomplete, and therefore not eligible.

DEADLINE: MARCH 24th 2019 (midnight CET time)
Women are especially encouraged to apply.
