Heed the Call

Whether you are in the process of applying for the Omidyar Fellows program or another opportunity, here are some helpful tips:


  • Your application should reflect your best work.
  • Be authentic—the real you is superior to a projected you.
  • Learn from the process—the application process should be reflective.
  • Have someone proofread your application materials.
  • Select a font that is legible across platforms.
  • Keep to page and word limits.

Letters of Support

  • For your letter of support from a colleague outside of your organization, carefully select someone who knows you and your work well.
  • Both letters should be on letterhead, if applicable, and include a signature.


  • Clearly and succinctly describe your responsibilities for each job.
  • Highlight your achievements.
