The Omega Resilience Awards’ partner organization in India, StartUp!, is actively screening and interviewing candidates to become the first ORA India Fellows. The Omega Resilience Awards (ORA) provides fellowships, research grants, and media creation to support new models of thinking, leadership, communication, and engagement in response to the challenges of the global polycrisis. In its inaugural year, ORA is focused on Latin America, Africa, and India as cohort sites.
The ORA Fellowship program is designed to identify visionaries who can help their communities imagine what will be required to chart a path toward a more resilient future. The Fellowship convenes three global cohorts (with approximately seven fellows each) every year, with a foundational commitment to regional, historical and cultural diversity. The program aims to recruit ORA Fellows who are under 40 and have diverse culture, race, ethnic, and gender orientations.
In India, StartUp! has worked with an esteemed advisory board to find candidates who are public intellectuals working at the intersection of art and activism. Learn more about their search process here.
