Apply for the 2024 Gen-Z Think Tank Fellowship - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank

The Identity Review Think Tank Fellowship is pleased to announce the applications for its fifth year of fellows are now being reviewed. 

The Think Tank Fellowship is a highly selective program that is committed to nurturing exceptional emerging Gen-Z leaders from diverse backgrounds. With a rigorous selection process, only the most outstanding fellows are admitted each year. Our previous fellows have gone on to achieve incredible success in web3, finance, government, tech, and other fields, starting their own ventures and becoming recognized leaders in their industries.

We look for creative curiosity, intellectual rigor and leadership success. The program is more selective than most elite universities, receiving 100s of applicants each year but admitting no more than 10 per class. 

About the Fellowship | What our fellows say about the program


About the Program

The fellowship starts with an unforgettable annual retreat featuring masterminds, networking opportunities, and engaging experiences. Throughout the year, fellows access the members-only community, including engaging workshops and private speaker series. Fellows collaborate on exciting research projects, gain access to job opportunities, and have private fireside sessions with successful mentors and founders.

Over the last four years, the Think Tank Fellowship has offered a launchpad for the next generation of leaders by offering a transformative experience to exceptional emerging adults from unique backgrounds. Alumni have already secured prestigious jobs in web3, finance, government, tech, raised funding for their own ventures, and become recognized leaders in their fields.

“This program is for the type of person who is extremely self motivated, has conviction about the type of world they want to build, and values action over words,” shares Ivy Tsang, Class of 2021 Fellow.
