Melton Opportunities

When Melton Fellows participate in events of global significance, they return with new ideas, solutions, and partnerships to address global challenges. At the same time, through their participation, they help promote the concept of global citizenship and build a larger community. To enable this, Melton Opportunities was created. They provide incentives to expose Fellows to new ideas, expand their networks, and act as global citizens.

Melton Opportunities are grants that support Fellows’ participation in high profile international summits, as well as local conferences and workshops around a wide variety of topics of global relevance that Fellows are passionate about, personally or professionally. These include subjects such as community leadership, social media literacy, education, and social business.

Melton Opportunities are presented throughout the year on an ongoing basis.
