The Gerson Lehrman Group Social Impact Fellowship provides select nonprofits and social enterprises with a two-year pro bono partnership with GLG. We welcome applications from organizations working across all issue areas, including but not limited to education, environment, global health, and social justice.
The GLG Social Impact Fellowship is a multiyear pro bono partnership between the world’s insight network and some of the world’s most impactful social innovators.
GLG is the world’s insight network. They connect decision makers to the right experts so they can act with the confidence that comes from true clarity and have what it takes to get ahead. GLG Social Impact makes their model and resources available to innovative nonprofits, foundations, philanthropies, and social enterprises.

Fellows work with GLG in an intensive, two-year partnership that provides free access to the full suite of GLG products.
When assessing applications for the Fellowship, GLG consider the organization’s social impact, future goals, operational capacity, and need for the external expertise that GLG offers. They select registered nonprofits, social enterprises, and hybrid organizations that are:
- Driving impactful social change. Fellow organizations advance powerful missions and can demonstrate the positive impact of their work on the communities they serve.

- Positioned to make the most of a partnership with GLG. Fellow organizations are past the early development stage, with leadership ready to pursue ambitious goals and scale their impact significantly. They have been in operation for at least three years and employ at least five full-time staff members.
