Do you know the next Liberty Fellow?

In South Carolina’s 46 counties, there are dynamic, grassroots leaders who have the drive, proven success, and desire to make a difference. The hitch is they can’t nominate themselves. Nominators play a critical role. Candidates should be nominated by someone who understands the Liberty Fellowship criteria and knows them and their work well. 

Ideal nominees have achieved considerable professional success.  They are at an inflection point where they are ready to step up and lead - creating a broader impact statewide. Each class of Fellows will be comprised of individuals who represent a range of attributes including gender, geography, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, ideology and political affiliation. We expect and encourage Fellows to challenge one another’s ideas respectfully in conjunction with our commitment toward engaging a multitude of perspectives. However, the Fellowship will not accept nominees who express hate or intolerance toward others based on their particular ideas or identities.

Liberty Fellows join the over 2,500 other Fellows who are part of the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN).  The AGLN is comprised of entrepreneurial leaders from business, government and the nonprofit sector from over 60 countries who have participated in similar Aspen Institute leadership initiatives. These include regionally focused Fellowships in the U.S., Africa, Central America, India, China and the Middle East that share a commitment to enlightened leadership and to using their extraordinary creativity, energy and resources to tackle the foremost societal challenges of our times.
